The Cameron University Department of Music will present the Cameron Civic Symphony with special guest the Lawton High School Orchestra in concert on Tuesday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cameron University Theatre. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students/military/seniors. CU students with ID are admitted free.
The Cameron Civic Symphony, directed by Dr. Kirsten Underwood, is a community string orchestra comprised of Cameron University students, Lawton Public Schools' students, and homeschooled 8-12th grade students, as well as community members from Lawton, Altus and Duncan. The ensemble will perform the “Overture to Messiah” by Handel and the opening to Stamitz’s “Mannheim Sinfonia No. 3.” The group will also present the Basse-Danse, Pavane and Mattachins movements from Peter Warlock’s “Capriol Suite.” Audience members who delight in hearing melodies from musical theater will enjoy highlights from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” and Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Phantom of the Opera."
Under the direction of Kathy Liticker, the Lawton High School Orchestra will present “Overture to Lucio Silla, K. 135” by Mozart and Jeffrey Bishop’s “Declarations.”
The two ensembles will conclude the concert with Henry Mancini's “The Pink Panther," pop singer Adele's recent hit “Rolling in the Deep,” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” one of Green Day's signature songs.
The Cameron Civic Symphony rehearses during the first 8-week session of each semester and is available to interested musicians through an audition process. For more information, contact Director Kirsten Underwood at 580-581-2445 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
