Opening Concert of the Oklahoma Community Orchestra

The Oklahoma Christian University Department of Music invites you to attend the opening concert of the Oklahoma Community Orchestra 2013-14 season on Tuesday, October 8, at 7:30 p.m. This is the 30th season for the OCO, and OC Music Professor Dr. John Fletcher is beginning his 10th season as conductor for the orchestra. The program will be presented in Oklahoma Christian’s Hardeman Auditorium. (To see a campus map, follow this link http://www.oc.edu/about/map.aspx.)

This 30th year is being billed as a Season of Fanfare.  This concert will kick off with John Williams’ stirring Liberty Fanfare, written in the 1980s for the rededication of the Statue of Liberty.  Dr. Jeongwon Ham will be featured soloist on Edvard Grieg’s beloved Piano Concerto in A minor, and the program will conclude with Ludwig van Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony.  For further information, please call the OC Music Department at 425-5530, or visit the OCO website at www.okorchestra.org. Admission is $10 at the door and $8 if purchased in advance online (www.okorchestra.org).  Children under age 13 will be admitted free of charge. OC students, faculty, and staff are admitted free of charge 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.
