Composers

Our guest on ST is the widely acclaimed mandolinist and composer, Jeff Midkiff. He will soon perform his "Concerto for Mandolin and Orchestra: From the Blue Ridge" with the Signature Symphony at TCC. The concert happens on Saturday night, the 28th, at the TCC Van Trease PACE (at 10300 E. 81st Street in Tulsa). It begins at 7:30pm; ticket information is posted here. The evening will also feature Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony as well as the Overture from "Ruslan and Lyudmila" (the opera by Mikhail Glinka).

This summer I am dedicating the show to composers you don’t get to hear often, and I am calling is a "Festival of Overlooked Composers" on Classical Tulsa. The series began on June 7 with the Baroque era and moves forward each week, culminating on July 5 with some of my favorite overlooked American composers.

Who are the artists? Of course, there are several women among history’s most overlooked composers
