Armstrong Breaks Ground on New Arts Center
January 06, 2008
Edmond, Okla.—(March 5, 2013) KCSC Classical 90.1 FM radio station’s Performance Oklahoma series will air at 8 p.m., Sat. March 9 on Tulsa’s KWTU Classical 88.7 FM featuring a broadcast of Grammy-winning opera superstar Nathan Gunn’s performance at Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond late last year.
Nathan Gunn is accompanied by his wife, Julie, at a recital Nov. 1 at Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond, Okla.
Performance Oklahoma is a two-hour weekly broadcast program featuring Oklahoma concerts intertwined with guest artist interviews produced and hosted by KCSC’s Kimberly Powell.
KWTU plans to air the Gunn broadcast followed by other Performance Oklahoma offerings each Saturday evening including the first edition of Oklahoma Youth in Classical and Chamber Music Tulsa’s Tokyo String Quartet concert coupled with Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s Zodiac Trio concert.
Powell said listeners will hear Gunn perform with his wife, pianist Julie Gordon Gunn, and a selection of songs by Franz Schubert and “one of the most enigmatic song cycles of the romantic European tradition, Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe.”
“After intermission, the audience journeys with the Gunns to America via a sampling of songs by Samuel Barber, maverick and visionary Charles Ives, and from the music hall and vaudeville tradition, cabaret settings by William Bolcom,” she said.
KCSC is licensed by the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond and has largely featured a classical format since 1966.
“One part of the mission of KCSC is certainly to help acquaint and connect our listeners of classical music radio here in central and southeastern Oklahoma, to live classical music events of remarkable breadth and variety happening locally and with that effort, to celebrate and support Oklahoma’s vibrant classical music community,” Powell said. “Performance Oklahoma represents this intent, with its showcase of concerts offered by presenters across the State and to see it become a part of the weekly broadcasts of KWTU across northeastern Oklahoma is a thrill!"
