Saturday, Jan. 12, at 8 p.m.
Just like in the stories in which the star of the show must bow out because of an injury, offering the understudy the big break she’s been waiting for, violinist Ryu Goto will play with the OKC Philharmonic this weekend. Stepping in for the previously scheduled Stefan Jackiw (who is recovering from an injury), Goto, however, already has a big career with sell-out concerts in Japan. Pristine Visions, nonetheless, will be an important concert for Goto as his debut with the OKC Symphony. And with performance pieces from Dvorak and Beethoven, it could be significant for the audience, too. Tickets are $15-$65, available at Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall box office, 201 N. Walker Ave., and online at www.myticketoffice.com.
