Celebrating more than 25 years of holiday traditions, Signature Symphony’s Christmas in Tulsa 2017 show ushers in a familiar face.
“Signature Symphony … welcomes Barry Epperley, founder of Signature Symphony and artistic director and conductor for 35 years, back to the Signature podium this year,” says Andres Franco, music director.
Epperley leads a show that includes a bevy of tunes, instruments and musicians.
“This year, the performance includes three violin soloists performing a bravura arrangement of ‘We Three Kings.’ The Signature Chorale and Sheridan Road, a vocal jazz ensemble, joins the orchestra to inspire a night of Christmas cheer as we continue our tradition of singing in the holiday season,” Franco says.
Especially magical is the audience participation portion of the evening.
“Our favorite part of Christmas in Tulsa is when the audience joins with the orchestra and Signature Chorale to sing everyone’s favorite holiday songs such as ‘White Christmas,’” Franco says. “It really is a magical moment when more than 1,600 voices become one to celebrate the season.”
Christmas in Tulsa runs at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8-9 at Tulsa Community College’s Van Trease PACE. Visit signaturesymphony.org for tickets.
