Choregus Productions Begins a New Season of Cutting-Edge Dance and Memorable Music Here in Tulsa

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we speak with Ken Tracy, the founder of (and programming director for) the Tulsa-based nonprofit arts organization known as Choregus Productions. Choregus will kick off its 2012/2013 season with performances on Saturday and Sunday (the 22nd and 23rd) by Complexions Contemporary Ballet; the pair of dancers/choreographers who created Complexions have been hailed by The New York Times as "two of the greatest vituosos ever to emerge from Ailey land." (You can get a complete schedule for the new Choregus season, as well as detailed information on tickets, curtain times, and other matters, at this link. Or you can call 918-688-6112.) Choregus has only been around for a few years now, but it's already established itself as one of our community's outstanding presenters of arts/dance/music events. And as Tracy tells us on today's show, the mission for this organization is the same as it's always been: To present a range of top-quality performances that just otherwise wouldn't be staged here in T-Town.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
