This year the Universiteitskoor Maastricht celebrates its 40th birthday.
Of course we didn’t want this fact to go by unnoticed and hence we choose to accompany this lustrum with some very festive programming.
This already resulted in a beautiful winterconcert last January and a very successful reunion day last February. But now it’s high time for the grand finale of our lustrum year: a festive performance of the Carmina Burana in the grand Auditorium of the MECC on saturday 17th of june.
Of course, we have chosen for this famous piece by Carl Orff primarily because of the grand and festive atmosphere it exhumes. Furthermore, it also turned out to be about ten years ago that the Carmina was performed in Maastricht.
And finally we considered it to be a happy coincidence that the Carmina Burana itself also had something to celebrate. For it’s eighty years since it was performed for the first time.
This also made us choose for the composers original setting; i.e. the spectacular setting with five percussionists and two pianists.
Hereby we’d like to invite you to buy one or more tickets for our concert, thus helping to turn our eighth lustrum into a truly wonderful event.
Lustrum-greetings from the board of the Universiteitskoor Maastricht.
