The University of Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra will make its Houston debut on Monday, April 1, 2019 at 8 pm, in the Cullen Theater at the Wortham Center. The concert includes Berlioz’ Roman Carnival Overture, Anthony Brandt’s Making Perfect, Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and Brahms’ Symphony No. 1. Jonathan Shames, director of orchestral studies and artistic director of OU Opera Theater, will conduct the concert.
The orchestra, one of the most exciting collegiate ensembles in American universities today, has gained attention for its sell-out performance in Dallas’ Morton H. Meyerson Center, as well as for hosting the 4x4 Prizes for Composers and Conductors. The ensemble performs regularly at OU, playing a wide repertoire of orchestral and operatic music.
This is a free event. Guests are strongly encouraged to RSVP. Tickets will be distributed in the lobby beginning 90 minutes prior to the performance. Those who’ve made reservations will have pre-selected tickets ready for them. All other tickets will be handed out to guests on a first-come, first serve basis.
