The Tulsa Symphony Orchestra Presents "Music of Spain and Latin America"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On today's StudioTulsa, we chat with James Bagwell about the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra's upcoming concert, which will spotlight music from (or about) Spain and Latin America --- and which will occur at the Tulsa PAC on Saturday, May 1st, at 7:30pm. Bagwell will serve as Guest Conductor for this concert, which will include compositions by Chabrier, Falla, Ginastera, Moncayo, Piazzolla, and Revueltas. Familiar to many Tulsans for his decade-long tenure as the Music Director of Light Opera Oklahoma, Bagwell maintains an active schedule throughout the United States as a conductor of choral, operatic, and orchestral music. Last year, he was named Music Director of The Collegiate Chorale, based in New York City. Since 2003, Bagwell has been Director of Choruses for the Bard Music Festival (at Bard College). Bagwell has also conducted the TSO on previous occasions. As he tells Rich Fisher on today's show, the TSO's upcoming "Spain and Latin America" concert offers the Tulsa community an exciting opportunity to hear live, orchestral, expertly-played performances of certain classical works that are very rarely heard in the U.S. (For more information on this concert, including ticket details, please visit tulsasymphony.org --- or simply call 918-596-7111.)
