If you are a college student, you might think going to the symphony is not for you. But that could not be farther from the truth.
The members of Tulsa Community College’s Signature Symphony excel at playing both instrumental orchestral music and contemporary, well-known songs. Their new season began Oct. 1 with the concert “Rachmaninoff and the Dance Floor,” where the symphony will bring a fresh take to the concept of mellifluous music. Director Scott Seaton said that this season will “begin a new era of the Signature Symphony.”
He emphasizes that as forms of entertainment continue to change and be reinvented thanks to the pandemic, live concerts provide a community experience of music. Music can give voice to people’s feelings, which many are untangling in this still-changing world around us.
Students, faculty, staff, and their families are also invited to see the inner workings of the symphony at its free Open Rehearsals. At the Thursday (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.) before each performance, you can talk with the director and musicians and then watch part of the rehearsal. The first one occurred on Sept. 29.
You can purchase Signature Symphony season tickets starting at $112, or tickets for an individual concert beginning at $35. You can buy tickets here or call the PACE Ticket Office at 918-595-7777.
