Makris                     Alleluia
Tchaikovsky           1812 Overture (with chorus)
Orff                         Carmina Burana

Tchaikovsky’s politically charged 1812 Overture was composed to celebrate the Russian defeat of the Napoleonic army. This stirring patriotic hymn has also been adopted as a symbol of U.S. independence. Carl Orff’s rousing Carmina Burana contains one of the most versatile musical pieces in the entire Western canon: the opening section, O Fortuna, featured in a multitude of soundtracks for movies, advertisements, video games and sports events.
