The Oklahoma City Philharmonic welcomes two-time Grammy Award-nominee Philippe Quint to the stage for a night of Progressive Wildness at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City. The soloist, however, will be sharing the spotlight with the other star of the night – “Ruby,” the 1708 Stradivarius violin, also known as “the most expensive violin in the world.” The Stradivari Society has loaned the instrument to Quint, which says much about his range and ability. Conductor Joel Levine leads the night of free, bohemian sounds that include Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto, Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony No. 1 and Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini. The performance begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15. Tickets, $19-$65, are available at www.myticketoffice.com.
