Performances on Friday June 16 and Saturday June 17 of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana marked the final concert of Bill Eddins’ 12-year tenure as Music Director of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.

The ESO was joined by a whole raft of choirs – creating a chorus of well over 200 – and Orff’s most popular work was preceded by evocative compositions by two former composers-in-residence with the orchestra, Robert Rival’s Northwest Passage Variations and Estacio’s new Trumpet Concerto.
