The Oklahoma Christian University Department of Music invites you to attend the second concert of the Oklahoma Community Orchestra. The performance will be held on Tuesday, November 19th, at 7:30 p.m. This is the 30th season for the Oklahoma Community Orchestra, and OC Music Professor, Dr. John Fletcher is in 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).
As many in our nation celebrate the legacy of President Kennedy this month, the orchestra will offer a variety of musical remembrances. Selections to be performed include Leonard Bernstein’s Fanfare for the Inauguration of John F. Kennedy, Richard Rodgers’ Victory at Sea, Greensleeves, and a medley of songs from the Broadway musical often associated with the Kennedy presidency (Camelot). The orchestra will also perform Franz Suppe’s Poet and Peasant Overture as well as the Scherzo from Antonin Dvorak’s Sixth Symphony. Additionally, the OC Chamber Singers, under the direction of Dr. Kyle Pullen, will join the orchestra for a special selection. 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 Oklahoma Community Orchestra 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.
