SIU Concert Choir Joins Forces to Perform Carmina Burana
On Sunday, April 19, the SIUC Concert Choir joined singers from Murray State and Paducah Symphony Chorus to perform Carl Orff's Carmina Burana with the Paducah Symphony in the Carson Center. Under the baton of Maestro Raffaele Ponti, the performers brought down the house. Before the last note was cut off, the audience leaped to its feet with thunderous applause; this standing ovation lasted several minutes. Jeremiah considers himself very fortunate to be a part of the choral department of SIUC and that his voice students were able to be a part of something so wonderful!
