Michigan Tech Music presents
Performed by the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra, Michigan Tech Concert Choir, conScience: Michigan Tech Chamber Singers, and guest soloists
Conducted by Dr. Joel Neves, Associate Professor, Visual and Performing Arts
Disobedient, rowdy, and loads of fun, Carl Orff’s massive cantata, Carmina Burana—for large symphony orchestra, large chorus, and soloists—rocks the Rozsa Center for an evening of unbridled ecstasy. With music set to 24 satirical poems from the 11th and 12th centuries, Orff’s very modern choral-orchestral masterpiece (composed in 1936) starts and ends with the wild refrain, “O Fortuna,” popularized in numerous films and commercials.
Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra (KSO) is a college-community ensemble composed of Michigan Tech students, faculty and staff, and community musicians. The orchestra presents orchestral masterworks, choral-orchestral, music theatre, ballet, opera, and pops. Learn more about the KSO here.
