The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts Presents Its Second Chamber Music Festival
On this edition of ST, we learn about The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts, which is scheduled to open on the campus of OSU in Stillwater in October of this year. And although it's not yet open, the McKnight Center will soon offer -- from February 25th through March 3rd, with performances in Stillwater, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Dallas -- its second Chamber Music Festival. This festival will feature intimate soirée performances, a youth concert for area students, master classes for OSU student musicians, and a free community concert (happening in Stillwater on Saturday the 2nd). The well-known pianist Anne-Marie McDermott returns as Artistic Director for the festival, along with the famed St. Lawrence Quartet. Our guest is Mark A. Blakeman, Executive Director of The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University.
