TWILIGHT TIME FOR
THE MIDSUMMER FAIRY BALL,
SATURDAY, JUNE 16th, 7 TO 9p.m.



Twilight Time for the Midsummer Fairy Ball
Come to the Fairy Ball! Paseo Artists invite children and parents to the 17th annual Fairy Ball on Saturday, June 16 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm. This delightful summer’s evening harkens whimsical children of all ages to appear as if they have opened a fairy book and stepped out of a tale. Children may dress up as a character from fairy land, and create an evening of colorful music and dance in the historic Crown Jewel Amphitheater located at First Christian Church, 3700 N Walker.
The wonder begins at home before the Fairy Ball. Children can use imaginative thinking and creative play to make a costume from the resources they have at their fingertips. Parents are encouraged to become part of the treasure hunt to find forgotten fancies tucked away in closets, old trunks, dusty boxes and attics. Families can also take a trip to a local thrift store to rag pick from vintage clothing, formals, and whatnots. Intriguing keepsakes with their own stories can be discovered and designed into amazing costumes. When you see through the eyes of imagination, you will have ideas for building a make believe frock. A tuck here, a stitch there, a glittering jewel, something rough or fine, and a wish is all that a costume needs to become yours.
“How shall we beguile this summer’s eve if not with some delight?” asks Lorrie Keller, director of StarDanceSwan and creator of the ball. “Children in their costumes bring the Fairy Ball to life. We are awaiting the appearance of fanciful bugs, blossoms, elves, trolls, fairies, imps, comets, moon men, dragons, and more. Have fun with your own originality; any fanciful character that can be imagined is welcome.”
The Fairy Ball begins at 7:00 p.m. with ‘Flower Magic. Nestled around the trees, children can finish their costumes with their weavings of real flowers and leaves. As twilight approaches, around 7:50 pm, the StarDanceSwan Fairies spin color into motion and invite all children to follow them in rounds of dance. Children are encouraged to move in their naturally expressive ways to music befitting a Fairy Ball. Steve McLinn’s original Ojas Music bedazzles ears and helps little feet spin to his electric acoustical fusion sounds. When the evening grows darker, colors brighten and the music reaches
the stars. Parents can watch their children dance or dance with them in a special area.
Surrounded by trees and lights everyone can gaze into the starry sky while they dance in
their own ways. The ones who bring Midsummer’s Twilight Time into their hearts are
creating opportunities to feel delight and wonder.
On the evening of the Fairy Ball, everyone gathers at the Crown Jewel Amphitheater
located at First Christian Church at 3700 N Walker, just north of the dome and church
building. ‘Flower Magic’ is from 7:00 to 7:50 pm. The dance follows until 9:00 pm.
The Fairy Ball is free to the public; donations are appreciated to help offset the costs of
the event. Children must be accompanied by adults. In the event of inclement weather, a
rain date will be announced for a later time. The Fairy Ball is made possible through the
support of the Oklahoma Arts Council, Paseo Arts Association and Theatre Upon a
StarDanceSwan. For more information call the Paseo Arts Association at 525-2688 or

BRIGHTMUSIC GOES HOLLYWOOD:
THE CHAMBER MUSIC OF 
FILM COMPOSERS

Hooray for Hollywood!

A celebration of the classical music of film composers and of classical composers who wrote for film


June 14-19, 2018
St. Paul’s Cathedral
127 NW 7thStreet (at Robinson)
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Ever wonder what film composers are up to when they aren’t writing scores for blockbusters like Star Wars? Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble will explore the contribution of composers who have blurred the lines between classical music and motion pictures.  Oklahoma City’s premier chamber ensemble will present “Brightmusic Goes Hollywood: The Chamber Music of Film Composers” in its seventh annual Summer Chamber Music Festival at St. Paul’s Cathedral in downtown Oklahoma City.

Many of the composers are well known to the classical music set.  Others are icons of American cinema, and one is practically an institution. The four-concert festival will present classical works by Malcolm Arnold, Ennio Morricone, Sergei Prokofiev, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Nino Rota, Bernard Herrmann, John Williams, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Dmitri Shostakovich, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Leonard Bernstein and Miklós Rózsa.

All concerts will begin at 7:30 pm, except the 4:00 pm Sunday concert on June 17, at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 127 NW 7th Street (at Robinson).  Save $30 by purchasing a $50 festival pass that includes admission to all four concerts.  Season Subscribers, students and active-duty military personnel are admitted free with ID.
 

Music Trivia Quiz:   


One of the composers on the program for the Summer Festival wrote symphonies, concertos, ballets, choral music, chamber music and scores for more than a hundred films, including Bridge on the River Kwai in 1957, for which he won an Oscar.  Hint: he was born in England and was knighted in 1993. Another hint:  his work appears in the first concert of the Summer Festival.

Brightmusic Says Thank You! 

A BIG shout-out to the season members who have made a special Summer Festival contribution.  Brightmusic keeps ticket prices as low as possible--children and students are admitted free--so that everyone can experience the joy of chamber music.  So we must rely on the generosity of our members to present our annual Summer Chamber Music Festival, which is another perk of your season membership; a pass to the festival costs $50, but the festival is included at no extra charge with your season membership.  Where else do you get so much music for so little money?  If you have not had a chance to make a special tax-deductible Summer Festival contribution and are able to do so, please consider helping Brightmusic end its fiscal year in positive territory.

Answer to Trivia Question:


Sir Malcolm Arnold, CBE (1921-2006) was an English composer with breathtaking output, including nine symphonies, numerous concertos and other concert works, music for choral, wind and chamber ensembles, five ballets and two operas.  And somehow he still found time to compose scores for over 100 films, including The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) for which he won an Oscar.  One of his more popular short works is the Divertimento for Flute, Oboe and Clarinet, which will be heard in Concert 1 of the Summer Festival.

 



Music offers no quarter for compromise.  We sense in music an extension of ourselves, a reminder of our own potential for perfection.  Through music we become one with the stars.
