What are the Liberal Arts?

What are the liberal arts?

A liberal arts education means studying broadly—taking classes in many different subjects—and building skills that are geared toward more than just one profession. By studying the liberal arts, students develop strong critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. Liberal arts students learn to approach questions flexibly and to think across multiple disciplines. These are skills employers say they value most, even more than a specific major. In today’s labor market, career paths are changing rapidly, and graduates must draw from a variety of skillsets to adapt to challenges and capitalize on opportunities.

You are invited to attend the third concert of the Oklahoma Community Orchestra 2014-15 season on Sunday, February 22nd at 3 p.m. This is the 31st season for the OCO, and OC Music Professor Dr. John Fletcher is in his 11th season as conductor for the orchestra. This program will be presented at Oklahoma City Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (located at 7777 S. May Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73159).

This Children’s Concert will offer something for the entire family. Among the selections to be performed, Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” and Benjamin Britten’s “Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” provide insights into different instruments of the ensemble. KFOR-TV personalities Emily Sutton and (OC alum) Lucas Ross will provide narration and other entertainment throughout the concert. Another featured orchestra selection is a medley from the popular Disney animated film “Frozen.” For further information, please call the OC Music Department at 425-5530, or visit the OCO website at www.okorchestra.org. Admission is $15 at the door and $12.50 if purchased in advance online (www.okorchestra.org). Children age 12 and under will be admitted free of charge. Also, OC students, faculty, and staff will be admitted free with their OC ID.

The OCO is the “orchestra-in-residence” at Oklahoma Christian University. Several OC students, alumni, and faculty perform in the orchestra. Support for this performance has been provided, in part, by the Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

OC Theatre Presents Pygmalion

The OC theatre will present A comedy by George Bernard Shaw, Pygmalion on February 20, 21 & 27, 28 at 8:00pm in Judd Theatre.

THE STORY: A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue. In Shaw’s version, a voice teacher, Henry Higgins, is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his ‘creation’ has a mind of her own. (Suitable for all ages)
