Posted on: January 12, 2022

“A new partnership between the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra and the University of Tulsa will help to strengthen the university’s music program through masterclasses, performances and other activities,” writes James D. Watts Jr. in Monday’s (1/10) Tulsa World (OK). “Five Tulsa Symphony musicians will serve as artists-in-residence throughout the 2022-2023 academic year, conducting masterclasses with the TU Orchestra, serving as mentors for the students and performing recitals twice a year for the School of Music…. The orchestra will present chamber orchestra concerts at TU’s Lorton Performance Center in October 2022 and March 2023…. TU music students will be able to attend the dress rehearsals and will be provided discounted tickets to other events…. TU will provide a student intern from the university’s arts, culture and entertainment management program who will serve TSO while gaining a year’s worth of invaluable experience. The university also will promote Tulsa Symphony concerts held on campus as well as at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center…. The TU School of Music also welcomes students from all academic programs to audition…. All students participating in orchestra—regardless of major—will have the chance to sit alongside gifted TSO musicians and learn from them firsthand.”
