Conductor Beverly Taylor (below, the choral director at the UW-Madison and assistant conductor of the Madison Symphony Orchestra) and the Madison Symphony Chorus invite SINGERS OF ALL LEVELS to sing Carl Orff’s famously dramatic and popular modern oratorio “Carmina Burana” (the well-known opening, based on Medieval songs and texts)  is at the bottom in a YouTube video that has more than 10 million hits) at a community open sing on this April 16.

This is an opportunity for singers to have fun performing one of the most iconic works written for chorus; audiences have heard parts of it in many commercials over the years. (Below is a photo of composer Carl Orff.)

Anyone who has a little choral singing experience can come to the Wisconsin Studio (below, in a photo by Del Brown) at Overture Center for the Arts at 201 State Street on Tuesday, April 16 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Music scores will be provided, and soloists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music will join in the celebration.

New voices are always welcome in the Madison Symphony Chorus, and the community open sings are an ideal time to see how it feels to sing with the chorus that performs with the Madison Symphony Orchestra in Overture Hall each season.
