The Tulsa Oratorio Chorus Will Offer a "To Honor" Program for Veterans Day
On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with Tim Sharp, the Artistic Director and Conductor of the Tulsa Oratorio Chorus, who is also the Executive Director of the American Choral Directors Association. On Veterans Day -- Saturday the 11th -- as Sharp tells us, the TOC will present, in collaboration with Tulsa Air & Space Museum, two concerts in appreciation of our military service veterans. "To Honor," as this twice-in-one-night, one-hour presentation is being called, will offer songs that pay tribute to our veterans, our country, our faith, and our common American experience. Randall Thompson's stirring and patriotic "Testament of Freedom" will be the flagship work of the evening, which will also feature pop-music staples like "American Pie" and Simon & Garfunkel's "America" alongside "Battle Hymn of the Republic" and "This Land Is Your Land."
