Big Chorus Joins Final Symphonic Concert of 100th Season

Posted: Updated:

Saturday marked the final symphonic concert of the Erie Philharmonic's 100th season and the orchestra went out in a big way, adding the voices of the Erie Philharmonic Chorus, The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and the Young People's Chorus of Erie.

All of those voices filled the stage to join the orchestra in a performance of Carl Orff's scenic cantata Carmina Burana.

Music from the work has become very well known from its use in film, TV drama and even in commercials.

The orchestra also performed "Moby Dick" a work by distinguished American Composer Peter Menin, who was born in Erie.

A tribute to Motown closes the pops season on May 3rd.
