Like many kids not really exposed to classical music early on in life, when I heard the Carmina Burana for the first time, the back of my head was blown off.
I have since had an enduring love, and see live performances whenever I can.
This weekend, Mark is performing it with a bunch of community choirs (about 400 people) at Sydney Town Hall, with all proceeds to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
I’m still sick (11 days now), and if I don’t improve radically by Saturday I won’t be going either, but I wish I could. The Sydney Town Hall is a beautiful venue, and apparently they will be using the spectacular organ on the night.
