In the final concert of the 60th Diamond Anniversary Season, the Bartlesville Symphony Orchestra welcomes the highly-acclaimed Annie Moses Band to the Bartlesville Community Center stage on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
All the members from the Annie Moses Band are family – the group is named after their great-grandmother – and they are all Julliard-trained instrumentalists, skilled arrangers, and songwriters. Their sound and aesthetic is both eclectic and appealing, with influences ranging from American country, folk and bluegrass combined with a pop/jazz/rock twist, all rooted in classical training.
The Annie Moses Band will be performing selections from their “American Rhapsody” album, accompanied by the BSO under the direction of Maestro Lauren Green. The program includes a sultry southern ‘Summertime’ and another Gershwin hit with a Nashville twist, Rhapsody in Bluegrass; Psalm of Life based on Dvořák’s American Quartet; the ‘Hoedown’ from Aaron Copland’s Rodeo, traditional songs including the evergreen Shenandoah, and other originals composed by the band’s six siblings.
This concert is sponsored Ernst and Young and Conoco Phillips. In addition to the performance, Maestro Lauren Green will be announcing the BSO’s 61st Season line-up. To purchase tickets for the concert, stop by the BCC box office, call 918-336-2787 or by visit: www.bsook.org
