Design is in everything; at least that’s true of great musical compositions carefully written by genius for meter, tone, harmony and feelings they, together, draw from a listener. Verdi’s Overture to La Forza del Destino, which lends its title to Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s newest show, leads off an evening of works by Haydn (Cello Concerto in C Major) and Brahms (Symphony No. 1). In-demand cellist Zuill Bailey, acclaimed for his soul-stirring performances, joins the philharmonic in the music hall’s Thelma E. Gaylor Performing Arts Theatre, 201 N. Walker Ave. Show will be 8 p.m. Saturday, March 2, and tickets range from $15-$65 each. A concert preview is also scheduled at 7 p.m. Tomasz Zieba, adjunct instructor of cello at Oklahoma City University, is joined by Dorothy Hays, former music director at Putnam City Schools, in a performance that is free to Force of Destiny ticket holders.
