"Wine, women and song" from the medieval student perspective is theme of this classic work by Carl Orff.  The composer's own arrangement for two pianos and six percussionists will be used.  One reason for "Carmina's" popularity the broad familiarity with its most widely used song, "O Fortuna," which has been heard in many movies.
