Pandemic performances

This year, the School of Music’s beloved Concerts with Commentary series has gone virtual. Catch the fall’s performances archived on YouTube and mark your calendars for our spring offerings.

By: Kim Childs, Professor of Choral Studies and Voice

The Concerts with Commentary series features award-winning music faculty who not only perform with excellence, but also share the cultural background and historical context of the repertoire and composers represented on the series. Each concert focuses on a different genre, or specific composer or group of instruments. Concerts are free and open to the public.

The 2020-21 Concerts with Commentary series is being broadcast via the University of Tulsa YouTube Channel. Click the concert title link to access the recital; concerts are streamed at 7:30 p.m. on the day of the concert and are available for viewing after the date.
