Dustin Prinz - Eleven

Few musicians take the time to master their instrument in the way that Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Dustin Prinz has; he’s a guitar virtuoso in every sense of the word, and Eleven gives him the chance to show just how far he can push that skill.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss

Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.

Colourmusic — May You Marry Rich

There’s always a sense of danger when debuting songs in a live setting and playing them well. Without having heard the studio versions, expectations are set according to the live incarnations. But capturing the breadth of free-flowing atmosphere and sheer volume on a disc, vinyl or digital file isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for a band as vociferous as Colourmusic.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters

As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

Yuval Waldman

Yuval Waldman returns for the Holiday Concert Under the Dome.

Carmen Forman November 30th, 2011


Violins, Christmas concertos and the acoustics of the Gold Dome building will combine to create one unforgettable night of music.

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma is bringing back its Holiday Concert Under the Dome with Yuval Waldman.

The internationally renowned Waldman is an artist-in-residence at USAO and has worked with the university on other concerts. With his roots in Russia, he’s performed all over the globe.

Waldman performed a violin concert in March focused on music of oppression and liberation. All of the works were from composers who were killed during the Holocaust or persecuted by Soviet Communist regimes.

“We have a long-standing and very warm relationship with Yuval, so this is just one of the ways we cultivate that relationship,” said USAO spokesman Rob Vollmar.

Waldman chose the iconic Gold Dome, 1112 N.W. 23rd, for the concert because of the acoustics of the building and the intimate atmosphere. Also, he and USAO figured they would draw a bigger crowd if it was held in Oklahoma City, instead of USAO’s home base in Chickasha.

Waldman will pair with a choir from the Harding Fine Arts Academy for some carols. The choir plans to sing a carol in Spanish and one in Haitian. Tickets are $10-$20, and the concert begins 3 p.m. Sunday.

“It’s going to be a very cosmopolitan Christmas concert experience that will be like a world tour of how people celebrate Christmas all around and during different periods of time,” Vollmar said.
