For one night only, the Department of Creative and Festival Arts (DCFA) of The University of the West Indies proudly presents a complete performance of Carl Orff’s towering choral masterwork 'Carmina Burana'. Jessel Murray will conduct the combined forces of the UWI Arts Chorale , UWI Percussion and UWI Steel. Dr. Jeannine Remy will also conduct the UWI Percussion in separate works for percussion. This performance will take place at The National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) on Sunday 8th April, 2018 at 6:30pm.

Composed in the years 1935 to 1936 by Carl Off, 'Carmina Burana' is one of the most well-regarded and popular choral works in existence. The work is so popular that the opening "O Fortuna" has become a staple of movies, advertisements and other elements of pop culture. Natalia Dopwell will sing the soprano solo, Keegan Miguel will sing the tenor solo and Marlon De Bique and Krisson Joseph will share the baritone solos.

This joint production of 'Carmina Burana' promises to be an exhilarating experience for the audience. Tickets are $150.00 and are available at the Department of Creative and Festival Arts (DCFA) Gordon Street and members of participating ensembles.
