Re: "Strictly Gershwin," a Chat with Gareth Valentine, the Acclaimed British Composer and Conductor
On this edition of StudioTulsa, our guest is Gareth Valentine, the well-regarded British composer, arranger, conductor, and musical director. He's currently in town to conduct "Strictly Gershwin," a Derek Deane-choreographed piece that Tulsa Ballet will stage from February 9th through the 11th. (To learn more about this production, which is having its North American premiere here in Tulsa, please visit this link.) As we learn on today's show, Valentine has worked on many of London's notable West End musicals over the years, including "Miss Saigon," "Chicago," "42nd Street," "Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Porgy and Bess," and so on.
