Signature Symphony with Asleep at the Wheel
Symphonic strings and Western swing at the VanTrease PACE
Friday-Saturday, Oct. 19-20 at 8 p.m.
Not since the days of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys has a band become as synonymous with Western swing music as Asleep at the Wheel. The band, based in Austin, Texas, has collaborated with dozens of musicians in its 40-plus years – the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Dixie Chicks, Lyle Lovett, Tim McGraw and Willie Nelson among them. This weekend, Ray Benson and the rest of the group lend their twang and step to the next Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College Pops Series concert. Two shows are scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Oct. 19-20, at the college’s VanTrease Performing Arts Center at the Southeast Campus, 10300 E. 81st St., Tulsa. Tickets are $27.50-$59.50, available at www.signaturesymphonyattcc.org.
