Andres Franco contends for a lasting spot on the conductor’s platform.
Friday, Feb. 6 and Saturday, Feb. 7 –
Do you ever wonder about the men and women behind the creation of those iconic, big, thematic scores, that so many of us link to that one opening scene, epic battle or suspenseful moment on the big screen? For fans of movies such as Harry Potter, Star Wars and Jaws, among countless others, you should know the name behind the sound. Composer John Williams has given so much to the entertainment industry, and some of his best work can be heard on Feb. 6 and 7 when conductor Andres Franco leads the Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College. Franco has become one of three Signature Symphony conductor candidates since Dr. Barry Epperley stepped down as artistic director and conductor in July of last year. The Music of John Williams will join this year’s season that showcases the programing and performing skills of the three candidates. See Franco contend for a lasting position in front of the Signature Symphony at TCC starting at 7:30 p.m. on both nights. For more information, visit www.signaturesymphony.org.
