Carl Orff did not call "Carmina Burana" an opera or a choral symphony or an oratorio or a song cycle. He called it a "scenic cantata" - a clue, says Tom Hall, music director of the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, that he intended it for the theater, not the concert hall.Choral Arts' production of "Carmina" grants the composer's wish. Co-conceived with the Kimberly Mackin Dance Company, the production offers a "Carmina" for the eyes as well as the ears, the senses as well as the spirit.First performed by Choral Arts to a sold-out house in 1995 at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, "Carmina" will be revived May 17-20 for four performances at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts in Owings Mills.

These days, many classical musicians would consider themselves fortunate to make one or two recordings a year. Marin Alsop has three discs coming out Tuesday alone. Alsop has been one of the most prolific conductors in the recording studio for the past several years, working mainly with the remarkably successful budget label Naxos, which is releasing Tuesday's triple volley. These new releases find the music director designate of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra collaborating with two British ensembles - her other BSO, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, which named her principal conductor in 2002; and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The musical glory of the baroque era was stylishly revisited Sunday evening in the splendid, near-baroque setting of Baltimore's St. Ignatius Church. A top-notch group of singers and instrumentalists from around the country was assembled to give a rare performance of Georg Philipp Telemann's oratorio "Der Tag des Gerichts" - "The Day of Judgment." All proceeds from the well-attended concert will go to the restoration fund at the 1856 Jesuit church. Making the event possible was the Philadelphia-based International Institute for Culture and a gift from a Florida couple, a case of inspired philanthropy.

It should be quite a night at Jim Rouse Theatre on Saturday, as swans roast on spits, intemperate monks stammer out loud invocations to the patron saint of dice throwers and an energetic men's chorus serenades one and all on the glories of drink. Such a hubbub can mean only one thing: a performance of Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana," the splashiest, raciest, most colorful blockbuster of the entire choral repertoire is on tap. "It really is a major switch from what singers are normally called upon to do, and that's great," says Frances Motyca Dawson, who will conduct three soloists, Peabody Children's Chorus, a full orchestra augmented by a pair of pianos and no fewer than five timpani, and her own Columbia Pro Cantare at the 8 p.m. performance.
