A Chat with Bob Chilcott, the Noted British Choral Composer, Conductor, and Singer
On this edition of StudioTulsa, an entertaining conversation with the celebrated British choral composer and conductor, Bob Chilcott, who sang in the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, as both a boy and a university student. Known for his compositions for children's choirs and other vocal groups, Chilcott has worked in a wide array of musical settings; he's been composing music of his own since 1997. Chilcott is currently in town to participate in a few music-education and youth-choir activities, and tomorrow night (Saturday the 21st) he'll cap off his visit by conducting the Tulsa Oratorio Chorus in a performance of his wonderful "St. John Passion" (which debuted in 2013) at the First Baptist Church in downtown Tulsa, located at 403 South Cincinnati. The concert begins at 7:30pm, and tickets are available at MyTicketOffice.com or (918) 596-7111.
