Maestro Yuval Waldman Holiday Concert

Dec. 4

Maestro Yuval Waldman of New York City returns to Oklahoma on Dec. 4 for a Holiday Concert Under the Dome – showcasing the choir from the Harding Fine Arts Academy and a world-class strings group led by Waldman.

Waldman will perform a variety of holiday concertos from around the world, including Arcangelo Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, with his string ensemble.

Students from Harding Fine Arts Academy under the direction of J. Warren Mitchell will add vocal talent to the evening’s program.

Never imagined as a concert space, the Gold Dome building at 23rd and Classen was saved from extinction as a bank and then reimagined in recent years as a multicultural center with shopping, dining and music. The concert, set for 3 p.m. Dec. 4, is made possible by the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma Foundation in Chickasha.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students and children 18 and under, and are available at www.usao.edu/dome or by calling 405-574-1213. Tickets also are available at the Gold Dome or from the Harding Fine Arts Academy. The concert will benefit music programs at the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha and the Gold Dome Multicultural Society in Oklahoma City.

Waldman, a Russian-born Israeli violinist who has performed around the globe, serves as creative director for this third Holiday Music Under the Dome event. In Oklahoma, Waldman is known for the highly imaginative three-year series on great composers at USAO.
