Timothy Verville, Conductor of Arizona Pro Arte, Leads the Signature Symphony at TCC This Weekend

Aired on Friday, September 26th.

On this installment of ST, we welcome Timothy Verville, who will be the guest conductor with the Signature Symphony at the TCC Van Trease PACE (at 10300 E. 81st Street) tomorrow night (Saturday the 27th). Verville -- whose full bio you can read here -- earned a Bachelor of Music from the University of Oklahoma, a Master of Music from the Boston Conservatory, and a Doctor of Musical Arts from Arizona State University; he currently servers as the artistic director and conductor of Arizona Pro Arte, and he's been the associate conductor of the Boston Chamber Orchestra since 2008. Verville is also one of three finalists now being considered in the symphony's search for a new artistic director and conductor. (The other two candidates are Andrés Franco, who will be on our program when he appears in our community in the future, and Michael Rossi, who was on ST when he guest conducted the Signature Symphony earlier this month.) Verville's turn in the Van Trease PACE spotlight begins at 7:30pm tomorrow night, and the evening's program will feature the 8th Symphony by Antonin Dvorak, Edvard Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor (with William Wolfram as the soloist), and the Overture to "Ruslan and Lyudmila" by Mikhail Glinka. More about this concert, including ticket details, can be found here.

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.
