Dallas Wind Symphony’s “Carmina Burana” Tonight

Here’s my mini-review: Go. The performance is brilliant, fun, and emotional.  The Wind Symphony’s Jerry Junkin manages to conduct not only a rousing orchestra but four different choruses with bravado and charm. If I were a music critic I might mention that soprano Angela Turner-Wilson was ethereal and that baritone David Small handled a very difficult role with finesse, while tenor Jeffrey Jones-Ragona might want to stay home and nurse his throat next time, but I’m not a music critic.  

The performance begins at 8. Now I’m going to tell you my dirty little secret. Symphonies put the draw after the intermission.  If they put it before the intermission, half the audience would leave. Instead, that’s when I arrive, at intermission, which in this case is about 8:45. Do not, under any conditions,  follow my poor example.
