My choir's concert -- with sound!

We had a concert several week ago of a piece called Off, Off, Offenbach, an arrangement of some of Offenbach's best known works (think "Moulin Rouge" and the Can Can) for choir and percussion. We were fortunate to have Les Percussions Claviers de Lyon, a fantastic percussion ensemble, to play with us. We had a lot of fun singing it, even though the audience kind of sucked on the first night

Anyway, I just got a copy of the recording, and thought I might share the short first movement with you. It's in some kind of French, though I can't vouch for our pronunciation

You mean the overture to Orpheus in the Underworld?

Well, yeah -- but the piece brought together bits of different Offenbach pieces. So we had a bit of Orpheus, some La Belle Hélène, and some Tales of Hoffman all thrown in there together.
