The Tulsa Symphony Plays Mozart and Prokofiev with Guest Conductor James Judd at the Helm
Tomorrow night, Saturday the 11th, the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra continues its current season with a pair of beloved yet quite different masterpieces: Mozart's Symphony No. 40 and Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5. The concert begins at 7:30pm in the Chapman Music Hall at the Tulsa PAC. (You'll find more about this upcoming concert at this page from the TSO website.) We are joined today on ST by James Judd, who will be the Guest Conductor tomorrow evening. He's has a long and distinguished career in classical music, including a tenure as the Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestre National de Lille in France and a 14-year run as the Music Director of the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra. He also served for eight years as the Music Director of the New Zealand Symphony, participating in that orchestra's well-regarded recordings of Copland, Bernstein, Vaughan Williams, and others. As we learn today, Judd is equally passionate about working with established orchestras and musical organizations as well as younger players and student musicians. In this regard, he recently became the Music Director of New York's Little Orchestra Society, a long-running organization known for its unconventional and innovative programming.
