Aired on Friday, November 20th.

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.

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.
