Free Virtual Concert
featuring Michelle Cann
Saturday, July 18, 2020 - 7:00 p.m.
Chamber Music Tulsa is proud to partner with Chamber Music Society of Detroit and CameraMusic to present a free virtual concert featuring pianist Michelle Cann.
Florence Price: Piano Sonata in E minor
Chopin: Ballade No. 3 in A-flat major, Op. 47
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue (solo piano version)
Michelle Cann’s program includes Chopin’s Ballade in A-flat major, the warmest and most lyrical of his four ballades, book-ended by two American works written within a decade of one another, one by a white composer and the other by an African American, but both deeply influenced by African American musical roots.
Pianist Michelle Cann has made a deep commitment to performing a wide range of repertoire and to bringing the arts to local communities. After making her orchestral debut at the age of 14, she has gone on to perform as soloist with the Florida Orchestra and the New Jersey, Knoxville, Tampa Bay, Memphis and Cleveland Institute of Music Symphony Orchestras. She has performed on the nationally broadcast radio show, "From the Top," hosted by Christopher O’ Riley, was featured as the inaugural performer on WRTI 90.1 Philadelphia's series, "In Recital," and her performances have been broadcast regularly on Philadelphia's WHYY Television.
Final concerts of the 2019-2020 Season postponed
As a result of the Mayor’s order regarding events at city-owned properties, The Tulsa Performing Arts Center has gone dark until April 15th. Because of this, our final concert weekend of the season with the Miró Quartet, originally scheduled for April 4 & 5, will be postponed and rescheduled. Additionally, our April 23rd special concert with the Akropolis Reed Quintet has been postponed.
We are looking forward to rescheduling these activities when it is safe to do so. The health and safety of our community is vitally important to us, and we are all doing our part. We are actively discussing options with Akropolis and Miró’s management, the TPAC, and the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture. We will be in touch as soon as we have settled on a new date.
We look forward to a time when we can share the transformative and healing power of live chamber music with you again. In the meantime, stay safe and be well!
To the many Black artists in the chamber music field: we honor you, we see you, we value our relationships, and we look forward to a better, more just future. There is so much work to do.
