The Tulsa Symphony Opens Its New Season with a "Blue" Performance

Sep 21, 2012

What does "blue" mean to you --- that is, what does it mean musically? Does it denote a calm sky? Or a dramatic seascape? Or a conservative or subtle --- or perhaps emphatic --- image of some kind? Tomorrow night (Saturday the 22nd) at 7:30pm, the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra kicks off its new season with a "blue"-inspired concert in the Chapman Music Hall at the Tulsa PAC. (Each of the performances in the TSO's 2012-2013 season will carry its own colorful theme, as it were --- there's a "Green" concert in November, a "Yellow" one in December, etc. --- and you can find the full schedule for the TSO's new season, as well as information about tickets and seating and so forth, here.) For its forthcoming "Blue" concert, the TSO will play music by Ravel ("Mother Goose" suite), Debussy ("La Mer"), and Franck ("Symphony in D Minor"). Our guest on today's edition of StudioTulsa is James Paul, the Guest Conductor who will be leading the orchestra tomorrow night.
