About the Signature Symphony The Signature Symphony at TCC was formed in 1978 as a small professional chamber orchestra, the Tulsa Little Symphony, under the direction of founding artistic director and conductor Dr. G. Barry Epperley.  The small chamber orchestra grew, changing its name to the Oklahoma Sinfonia, and performed in venues and at events throughout Tulsa and Oklahoma. Eventually, the Sinfonia became the house orchestra for Tulsa’s Brady Theater, where it not only performed with renowned guest artists but also presented a series of pops and light classics concerts  each year. A move to Tulsa Community College in 1996 paved the way for further orchestral development for the Sinfonia. As the professional orchestra-in-residence for TCC’s Performing Arts Center for Education, the orchestra soon began offering both a Pops and a Classics concert series as part of its regular season. Expanded concert seasons afforded the opportunity to add more players, more instruments, and more diversity and complexity in the orchestra’s repertoire.   In 2001, the orchestra officially changed its name to Signature Symphony at TCC and broadened its Higher Scale Music Education Outreach program. Higher Scale operates as a partnership between Signature Symphony, Tulsa Public Schools and Tulsa Community College to take music education and experiences into elementary schools where music programs otherwise would not exist. Twice each week, professional Signature Symphony musicians teach viola, violin and cello to third, fourth and fifth grade students in 12 Tulsa Public Schools. In addition, the Signature Quartet performs at elementary, middle and high schools, and the orchestra provides free rehearsal look-ins for students each season along with free ticket offers for classics performances.  As it prepares to begin its next chapter under a new Artistic Director and Conductor, Signature Symphony at TCC includes 70 professional musicians who not only perform with the orchestra but also teach and coach music students at TCC, other colleges and universities, and various public and private schools and studios through the area.  The Signature Symphony is also committed to mentoring opportunities for student musicians. For selected performances over the years, outstanding collegiate and high school student musicians have had the opportunity to perform side-by-side with Signature Symphony’s professional players. For many of those students, these performing experiences have contributed to further educational opportunities at The Juilliard School, the Shepherd School of Music (Rice), the Oklahoma Philharmonic, the former Tulsa Philharmonic, the U.S. Marine Band in Washington, D.C., and the New World Symphony.

Vocal sensations and winners of season 3 of NBC’s The Sing-Off, Pentatonix are taking instrument-free music far beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. Named after the world’s most widely recognized five-note music scale, this quintet has transformed one of pop music’s purest and most soulful expressions into an exciting future, filled with limitless sonic possibility. From their original tracks to their intricate reimagining of pop hits and epically complex arrangements and medleys, Pentatonix have quickly developed a sound and style that is entirely unique and undeniably infectious. Pentatonix is comprised of lead vocalists Scott Hoying (22), Kirstie Maldonado (22) and Mitch Grassi (21), vocal bass Avi Kaplan (24) and beatboxer Kevin “K.O.” Olusola (25) and, while the individuals would maintain that each of their fellow band members is irreplaceable, the fact remains that 24-hours before their audition for The Sing-Off they still hadn’t all officially met.  After The Sing Off, Pentatonix relocated to Los Angeles where they produced and released 2 EP’s – PTX Vol 1 & PTXmas (both via Madison Gate Records) – each time debuting on Billboard’s Top 200 and selling more than 125,000 albums. They have twice toured North America, regularly selling out venues that include New York City’s Best Buy Theater and San Francisco’s Warfield Theater and their first ever European Tour sold out in its entirety. The have performed for Quincy Jones at Atlanta’s Fox Theater and were a featured performer for Diana Ross at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.

The Cadillac Three at Cain’s Ballroom

Country rockers The Cadillac Three will be making at stop at the Cain’s Ballroom on Thursday, February 5th. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, December 5th. Tickets will start at $13 (+ fees) and can be purchased Cain’s Box Office, by phone at 877-4-FLYTIX or online at cainsballroom.com  

While The Cadillac Three, formally The Cadillac Black, whose members include native Nashvillians Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray have been friends and musical co-conspirators since they were kids. They’ve weathered their wild teenage years and even wilder tours, weathered major label letdowns, major league triumphs and a major name change, conquered Music Row – Johnston co-wrote Keith Urban’s #1 single “You Gonna Fly” – and crashed on the couches of strangers in far flung cities. These boys have seen more ups and downs than a Smoky Mountain tour guide.

But in spite of all the trials and tribulations – or perhaps because of them – The Cadillac Three have emerged with a sound all of their own, a sound that hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk. You could call it country fuzz, you could call it hipster-billy, you could call it any number of over-hyphenated, adjective-strewn things but when you boil it all down there’s only one way to describe it: damn good music, as pure and refreshing as a country creek.

It’s a sound that works as well in front of an amphitheater full of ZZ Top fans or the Dierks Bentley crowd as well as it does in the dive bars and dark corners of the underground music. Though, truth be told, The Cadillac Three’s sound probably works best blaring out of your car speakers as you fly down the highway, wind blowing through your hair on the way to another wild Saturday night.

http://youtu.be/WuNLKoWOIEw

Built around Mason’s thundering, melodic percussion and the sinewy intertwining of Johnston’s guitar with Ray’s lap steel, songs like “I’m Southern”, “Days of Gold” and “Whiskey Soaked Redemption” on their self-produced debut bristle with energy and explode at a moments notice. Tracks like “Down to the River”, “Get Your Buzz On” and “Back It Up” evoke the legends of Southern Rock – your Molly Hatchets, your Outlaws, your Ozark Mountain Daredevils – but they aren’t nostalgic, aren’t fetishistic reconstructions of by-gone eras. This the new sound of the New South, bigger and badder than ever.

For more information about the band visit them thecadillacthree.com.  Tickets for their February 5th show at the Cain’s Ballroom can be purchased Cain’s Box Office, by phone at 877-4-FLYTIX or online at cainsballroom.com

Sarah McLachlan at the Brady Theater

Siren Sarah McLachlan will bring her “Shine On” tour to the Brady Theater on Tuesday, March 3rd Tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday, November, 14th at 10am.  You can pick up Tickets in Tulsa at Reasor’s and Starship Records and In Oklahoma City at Buy for Less Locations or charge by phone at 866.977.6849 and as always online at www.bradytheater.com. Tickets will start at $59.50

One day, not that long ago, Sarah McLachlan gave an advance copy of her new album Shine On to a friend who was about to set out on a road trip. “She said she listened to it on repeat throughout the whole drive; she laughed, she cried, she sang at the top of her lungs, and went through the gamut of emotions.”  McLachlan says. “That seemed like the perfect reaction to me. I want to make people feel, because I write from such an emotional point of view. That's what music does for me; it brings me closer to my feelings and puts everything out on the surface. A good song will bring up anything that has been pushed down and force you to feel it.”

 Largely produced by McLachlan’s longtime collaborator Pierre Marchand, Shine On is McLachlan’s 7th full-length album. This new album finds the musician in a ruminative, yet hopeful place. Unlike its predecessor, which dissected the dissolution of her marriage, Shine On eases up on the heartbreak and lets McLachlan — who has been somewhat defined by such signature ethereal ballads as “Building A Mystery,” “Adia,” “Angel,” and “I Will Remember You” — show an earthier side, especially on the up-tempo first single “In Your Shoes,” and the atmospheric rockers “Flesh and Blood” and “Love Beside Me,” the latter two of which were produced by Bob Rock (Metallica, Ron Sexsmith). 

 “I needed to challenge myself a lot,” she says. “I needed to step outside my comfort zone. For that reason, I made an effort to write with people I hadn't written with before and to try different producers, like Bob Rock, to take some of the songs in a different direction. He brought a lot of raw energy. He put an electric guitar in my hands and reminded me of how much I miss playing it.”

http://youtu.be/hgp5e2TxiQA

Sarah has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, won three Grammy Awards and eight Juno Awards, and was a founder and the face of the Lilith Fair tours, which showcased female musicians and raised over seven million dollars for local and national charities.  McLachlan is also the founder of the non-profit organization the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides free afterschool music education for at-risk and underserved kids who otherwise would have no access to music programming. 

 In June, McLachlan will hit the road for the U.S. leg of her “Shine On Tour,” which visits 31 cities across 22 states. “I love playing live and I'm very excited to get these songs into the hands of some great musicians and let them breathe fire into them, especially some of the more aggressive ones on the new album,” she says. “I love making records, and going through the process of discovery, but I like playing live even better, because you've got the song, you know it's great, and you get to take it someplace else. You get to experiment and be in the moment with it. That's everything to me.”

Varekai by Cirque Du Soleil at BOK Center

Enter the enchanted world of Varekai by Cirque Du Soleil as it makes it way to the BOK Center January 21st through the 25th. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased online at bokcenter.com.

 A dormant volcano, a mystical forest and an ancient prophecy... The adventure of Icarus begins.

 Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something is possible.  A world called Varekai.

 The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind. 

http://youtu.be/ERch966UhFI

 The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers.  Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.
