Kermit Poling will serve
as  conductor, Marisa Balistreri as
Soprano, Jonathon Yarrington as 
Tenor, and Dr. Jeffery Snider as Baritone.

A combined choir of over 200
voices and full orchestra are scheduled to perform. The cantata was created by German composer Carl Orff in the 1930’s and is based on 24 of the poems found
in the medieval collection Carmina Burana. This is his best known work.  The world premiere was presented in
Frankfurt by the Frankfurt Opera on June 8, 1937, with Bertil Wetzelsberger
conducting. The premiere was a big hit and spread to other opera houses. After
the second World War it developed into an international triumph.
