Song and Dance, Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble’s first concert of the season, promises a lively evening of works by American composers George Gershwin and Oklahoma City’s Edward Knight. Compositions of Argentinian Astor Piazzolla and Hungarian Ernst von Dohnanyi are also included.

The program includes the quintessentially American Porgy and Bess Ballade by Gershwin and the driving tango rhythms of Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

Other works are Knight’s Seventh Day of the Seventh Moon and von Dohnanyi’s Sextet in C major, Op. 37.

The concert is September 26, at 7:30 p.m. Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble presents fine classical music in a relaxed family-friendly setting. All concerts are at St. Paul’s Cathedral in downtown Oklahoma City at 127 NW 7th Street (at Robinson).

Individual tickets and season passes are available at the door. Season tickets may be purchased on line. Individual tickets are $20. Admission is free for children and students with student ID and for active-duty military service personnel with ID.
