Good news! I now have the means to convert old DVDs into streamable video! To satisfy requests from former Chico State students, excerpts from our Spring 2004 concert are posted below. The featured work on the concert, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, was performed by the Choral Union, two children’s choirs, wonderful instrumentalists, and outstanding vocal soloists. However, the Chamber Singers opened the concert with a delightful group of gems, some of which are also included here. Hard to believe this was 13 years ago!! Enjoy!!

Oh man, this was a great concert. I’m so sad I had to stop when I did! Still can’t sing right after 1.5 years, but I’m hoping it comes back one day.
Oh man, this was a great concert! I wish I didn’t have to stop when I did; I missed the East Coast Tour! Still haven’t been able to sing for 1.5 years, but I’m hoping my voice gets fixed some day.
Hello, Adam! Great to hear from you and thanks for commenting on my blog! So sorry to hear about your voice and hope it comes back soon. Do you know what caused it to go? You always sang so beautifully/musically/healthfully when you were a student at Chico! I’m sure not being able to sing is driving you crazy!
It is indeed, driving me crazy. I would like to see some kind of ENT who specializes in vocal performers to see if they can see something others have missed. In essence, I may be able to sing for a 5-10 minutes, then my voice tires out and it feels like I’ve been screaming for hours. Not sure what’s going on there… 😦
I could not figure out if Adrian were in this group or not?
Hi, Dean. Yes, Adrian’s definitely included in this video series, though maybe not in these particular clips. There are times when you can see her as the camera pans the choir, however, the tripod was so noisy that the cameraperson did less moving to keep it quiet. If I ever get around to posting “Carmina,” you’ll definitely see her on that video! Nice to hear from you, and please send Adrian my best!!!
Hello. I have the video of the entire Carmina Burana concert, and was wondering if anyone had a recording (audio or video) of one of the Beethoven’s 9th concerts? I even checked with Chico State, and they don’t.
