Students from The King’s School, Grantham, will join others from across the county and beyond to perform the inspiring Carmina Burana in the magnificent setting of Lincoln Cathedral on Saturday, January 30, at 7pm.

Carl Orff’s exhilarating piece is rightly one of the most popular of choral works.

“This is real community music-making,” says Kate Witney, who is co-ordinating the project for Lincolnshire Music Service. “Members of adult choirs are singing alongside school pupils and the performers range in age from seven to 84. We even have three complete families taking part.

“There was a wonderful atmosphere at the rehearsal day in November and we are very excited about the performance.”

The full orchestra also includes students, working alongside adult professionals, and the performance offers a rare opportunity to hear Carmina Burana performed by the forces for which it was originally written.
