A popular underscore in film and television, Carl Orff's powerful "Carmina Burana" is one of the most familiar choral classics of the 20th century. Now the Brookline-based Metropolitan Chorale presents an open-sing of this perennial classic imbued with the German tradition of Oktoberfest.

Members of the chorus and its talented solo artists-in-residence, conducted by music director Lisa Graham, invite the greater Boston community to experience the thrill of singing one of the 20th century's great iconic masterworks amidst the rousing spirit of the Oktoberfest tradition. Scores will be available, courtesy of Metropolitan Chorale, for those not owning their own. During this lively evening, beer, wine, popcorn and other goodies will be available for your personal enjoyment! Oktoberfest was originally a 16-day festival in Munich celebrating the food and beer of Bavaria. It is now celebrated around the world, conjuring up images of convivial good cheer, lively song, and frosty mugs of cold, foamy beer.

Tickets: $10
