Oklahoma City Ballet will kick off the Civic Center season with the classical ballet Giselle, presented by MidFirst Bank.  Giselle has its origin in 19th century French ballet, but is the ages-old tale of love, betrayal and forgiveness that has inspired dancers for generations.  The company will stage 4 performances, October 23-25 at the Civic Center Music Hall.  The Oklahoma City Philharmonic will bring Adolphe Adam’s musical score vividly to life live at each performance.  Single tickets start at $35 and are available now through OKC Ballet and Civic Center Box Offices.

Now this is the official October schedule for Miss Brown to You, and it’s jam packed with crazy stuff, so I beg your indulgence.

First up, our regular First Saturday Deal at Full Circle Book Store.  October 3rd.  (That sounds so good: October.  It’s October.)  7:30.  And they have not only fine coffee but a snappy wine list and your favorite local beers.

Sunday, October 4th: He’s Billy Joel, only not so famous.  He’s James Taylor, but cheaper.  He’s Paul Simon, only taller.  He’s Buddy Mondlock, one of the most well-regarded songwriters working today, and he will alight on North May Avenue right here in the 405 this Sunday Night, 7:30.  That’s at the Back Alley Gallery, 5026 N May Avenue, in that shopping center where Michael’s is.  Louise & I will join him for a few numbers.  $15 at the door.

Need more convincing?  Check this page out.  I have to say that among my ambitions, not irritating Janis Ian would be pretty near the top.  And, we recorded a song of Buddy’s on our album, ‘Roll Away’: Ticker Taker Blues.

Also, the next night, at our house (but you have to make a reservation) Buddy will give a Workshop on Songwriting.  It starts at 7:30 and costs $30, but that includes the wine.  So.  Email me for a reservation, or call me at 204-4884.

Wednesday, October 7th, Miss Brown to You will play the OKC Museum of Art at Noon, for the Arts Council’s Art Moves program.  Take your lunch break with us! 415 Couch Drive, 73102.

The Modernist Spectrum: Color and Abstraction

Now on view!

The Modernist Spectrum: Color and Abstraction joins the story of abstract art after World War II, at a time when it was not only ascendant, thanks to Jackson Pollock and the Abstract Expressionists, but also associated with America's global identity as a newly emergent geopolitical and cultural superpower. The works on view in The Modernist Spectrum explore the invigorating ways in which postwar American artists, especially those associated with the Washington Color School, made it new, producing novel work that sought to reinvent abstract art through an alternatively rigorous and playful manipulation of color, line, and shape.
