CLASSICAL | Carmina Burana 

Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" is loved for its bawdy medieval texts and earworm tunes, but this choral blockbuster is described as a "scenic cantata." So if you want to make a splash with it, why not give your audience plenty to look at as well as? That's the philosophy behind this weekend's production of "Carmina Burana" at SUNY Brockport, which not only makes joyful noises of its own, but also highlights the college's thriving music and arts offerings. "Carmina Burana" brings together not only the Brockport Symphony Orchestra, vocal soloists, and College-Community Chorus, as you'd expect, but also dancers from SUNY Brockport's Dance Department, a multimedia video display, and, for good measure, the Brockport Xylophone Ensemble. (Every town should have its own xylophone ensemble.) There's another unusual item on the program: Artie Shaw's Clarinet Concerto, with SUNY Brockport faculty member Scott Horsington as soloist.

SUNY Brockport presents Orff's "Carmina Burana" on Friday, May 9, and Saturday, May 10, at the Tower Fine Arts Center, SUNY Brockport. 7:30 p.m. $8.50-$16. 395-2787; Fineartstix.brockport.edu.
