Armstrong Auditorium continues diverse collection of international performances

The Armstrong International Cultural Foundation continues its mission of presenting world-class performances to central Oklahoma audiences with the announcement of its 2015-2016 Performing Arts Series. The series showcases an eclectic mix of talent from around the world the entire family will enjoy.

Armstrong’s 17th performing arts season kicks off with the superstar classical violinist Joshua Bell—a Grammy winner who was recently named music director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Another legend—conductor Gerard Schwartz—will take his New York Mozart Orchestra though the composer’s last three symphonies in an all-Mozart program.

Adding an international musical flair, the Grammy-winning Mariachi Los Camperos will explore Mexico’s most beloved folk songs while the military bands and pipes, drums and highland dancers of Her Majesty’s Scots Guard appear for a return engagement sure to delight the entire family.

The series also features Grammy Award-winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio in a program titled Chopin on the Cello, and an all-Beethoven program presented by the Polish-Baltic Philharmonic featuring Beethoven’s beloved Fifth Symphony.

The series includes Oklahoma-based jazz musician Mark Jenkins and ends with the Edmond-based Herbert W. Armstrong College Choral Union accompanied by professional orchestra performing Song of Songs, a new composition by Ryan Malone which vibrantly brings to life the text of King Solomon’s Song of Songs.

“We are looking forward to another year of great performances from our diverse season line up,” said Shane Granger, marketing director for Armstrong Auditorium. “From local Oklahoma talent, to Grammy Award-winners and even some returning favorites, the 2015-16 series is sure to bring in audiences with a variety of musical and performance passions.
