Guest Conductor Ron Spigelman and the Tulsa Symphony Celebrate Route 66
On this edition of ST, we welcome Ron Spigelman back to our show. He'll be the Guest Conductor for the next Tulsa Symphony Orchestra concert, which happens tomorrow night (Saturday the 11th) at the Tulsa PAC. As we learn on today's show, it's a Pops evening that will celebrate Route 66 -- indeed, a wide-ranging multimedia presentation (in image, text, and music) that will offer everything from Kander and Ebb's "Chicago" to Aaron Copland's "Buckaroo Holiday," and from W.C. Handy's "St. Louis Blues" to Bobby Troup's "Get Your Kicks on Route 66." Also on our program, commentator Mark Darrah is thinking about how -- more and more these days, it seems -- actual experience differs from mediated experience.
