Ever   wondered what it’s like to sing live at Symphony Hall with the full CBSO? Now’s   your chance to find out, in this one-off performance from scratch of Carl Orff’s   uproarious Carmina Burana – 60 outrageously tuneful minutes of life,   lust and monks behaving badly! And whether you’re a choral society veteran or   have only ever sung it in the shower, you’re welcome to rehearse and perform   it today, under the CBSO’s world-famous chorus director Simon Halsey.

Information for singers: rehearsals start at 1.30pm; further details will be   sent with singer tickets. Scores: we will be using the Schott edition. To hire   a score with Simon Halsey’s rehearsal markings, please purchase the all-inclusive   Singer & Score Hire ticket when booking. NB If you’re not bringing your own   score, pre-booking of score hire via this ticket is essential. Pre-booked scores   can be collected on the day from 12.30pm by showing your score ticket.
