Notes from the Maestro

“Our next concert will be Oklahoma Stories. Native American cultures lived on this continent way before the first Europeans, and we are celebrating and honoring their cultures in this program. We are starting with two tone poems by Oklahoma’s own Jack Kilpatrick: Four Ozark Dances and Three Cherokee Cosmogenic Legends. Jerod Tate’s Ghost of the White Deer will delve us deeper into Native American story telling. A bassoon concerto with our Principal Bassoonist Rod Ackmann. And we are ending with Revueltas’ La noche de los mayas, s symphony based on images and legends of the Mayas, with a percussion cadenza of 13 percussionists in the last movement.”
