The Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s season-opening program on September 14 will feature a rarely performed orchestral tone poem by Cherokee composer Jack Kilpatrick (1915-67), led by Music Director Alexander Mickelthwate. The work, recently discovered along with more than 36 other compositions in the archives at Oklahoma University, will be performed on a program entitled “Oklahoma Stories.” The performance will feature the commissioned premiere of Grand Entry Medley, arranged by Patrick Conlon and Christina Giacona, featuring Tim Nevaquaya on Native American flute, as well as drummer and singer John Hamilton. The concert will also include Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Alexander Arutunian’s Trumpet Concerto with Matilda Lloyd as soloist.
