UNC Choirs at Carnegie Hall in NYC

Residency May 10-14, 2023

UNC Choirs has been invited for a prestigious residency at Carnegie Hall in New York City! Their time will focus on rehearsals for their culminating performance of Carl Orff's iconic Carmina Burana with 90 UNC choir students, around 60 UNC choir alumni, several Colorado friends of UNC choirs, a professional orchestra (The New England Symphonic Ensemble) and a guest children's choir (ChildrenSong of New Jersey). This concert will be the Carnegie Hall performance debut for UNC Choirs as well as Director Jill Burgett's Carnegie Hall conducting debut.

Northern Colorado will also get to experience this masterpiece work as our choirs prepare for their trip to NYC! On April 29 at 7p.m., UNC Choirs will present Carmina Burana with the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra at the Union Colony Civic Center.
