A Globetrotter’s Guide to the Orchestra
And no need for vaccinations.
Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m.
It’s time once more to bid another season of musical mastery farewell as the Oklahoma City Philharmonic performs its 2012-13 season finale show this weekend. Of course, the OKC Phil has something spectacular planned – The Globetrotter’s Guide to the Orchestra features works to take the listener abroad where Wagner, Barber and Strauss explored soundscapes and culture note by note. There will also be an especially cool piece, Christopher Rouse’s Ogoun Badagris, inspired by Haitian drumming and highlighting the percussion section of the philharmonic. Joel Levin is the night’s guide at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Show starts at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 11, and tickets ($15-$65) are available at www.myticketoffice.com.
