Can three conductors lead one orchestra? Tulsans will find out as Tulsa Community College Signature Symphony continues its search for a conductor to replace Dr. Barry Epperley, the orchestra’s conductor and artistic director since it was founded in 1978.
The three candidates – Andrés Franco, Michael Rossi and Timothy Verville – will each lead the symphony for one performance during the 2014-15 TTCU Pops Series and one performance during the 2014-15 Williams Classics Series. All performances will take place at the VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education on TCC’s southeast campus.
“This will be a great opportunity for the arts community to see different conductor styles as each candidate takes the baton,” says Brett Campbell, TCC southeast campus provost and conductor search committee chairman. “We will see the creativity these conductors can bring to the professional orchestra as well as how they shape the sound and how they work with our Signature Symphony musicians and chorale members.”
Tickets for the upcoming season are available at the VanTrease PACE ticket office.
