It would be hard to find a less Christmasy piece of music than Carl Orff's famous Carmina Burana
. All the more reason to swing by Popejoy Hall on Thursday, Dec. 8, to catch a rendering of this dark, drunken masterwork performed by the University Chorus under the direction of conductor Jorge Perez-Gomez. The chorus will be accompanied by the UNM Concert Choir and the UNM Symphony Orchestra along with soprano Jennie Olson, soprano Sam Shepperson and baritone Nathan Krueger. Tickets are a steal at $10, $8 and $6. For more information, call 277-5915.
