BSO Warms Heart & Soul with Valentine Concert

Posted: January 29, 2019

                Let the Bartlesville Symphony woo you and your special someone with “Heart & Soul”—the orchestra’s annual Valentine concert, Saturday, February 9 at 7:30 pm at the Bartlesville Community Center.

With music ranging from favorite pop songs over the decades, to the movies, and to the classics, this concert has something to warm everyone’s heart.

“This concert gets better and better every year,” enthused BSO Conductor Lauren Green. “It’s amazing the incredible variety of musical favorites that all focus on love and romance!”

The theme from the movie “The Apartment”, Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March”, “Unchained Melody” from the movie ‘Ghost’, “Indian Love Call”, “All the Things You Are”, and the Waltz from “Sleeping Beauty” are only five of nearly 20 selections on the program.

Well-known pianist Wade Daniel will also be featured as soloist in this fun, eclectic evening of musical romance. From jazz to the classics, Daniel always delights audiences with his piano stylings. His genre-bending take on several classic love songs, including “How Deep is the Ocean” and “My Funny Valentine” will be a highlight of the evening.

Daniel is the Minister of Music at First Baptist in Bartlesville and holds several music degrees. With 10 CD’s under his belt, he has performed locally and throughout his native Texas.

“Bartlesville has such tremendous talent right here in the city limits,” commented Maestro Green. “Between Wade and our own amazing orchestra players, this will be a great evening of romantic music!”
