The Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s season promises masterfully executed pieces from start to finish. The season begins with the Gala Opening Night on Sept. 10, an evening defined by beautifully rendered classical music directed by a revered conductor.
“Gala Opening Night features Maestro Joel Levine leading Falla’s La Vida Breve – Interlude and Dance, Arnold’s English Dances and Strauss’s Death and Transfiguration,” says Susan Webb, the marketing director for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. “And a highlight sure to please all audience members will be the welcoming of sought after guest soloist Yefim Bronfman, playing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2.”
This season is a must-see, as it may be Maestro Levine’s final go-around with the company. Successors will be competing over the coming months to garner the coveted spot of music director, as Levine is set to retire within the next couple of years.
