|Your Host:||The United States Department of State, The University of Central Oklahoma and Kyle Dillingham|
The United States Department of State and The University of Central Oklahoma cordially invite you and your guests to this exclusive High Tea event kicking off the 2013 American Music Abroad World Tour of UCO Ambassador in Residence, Kyle Dillingham, sponsored by TAP Architecture, the Sovereignty Symposium, University of Central Oklahoma Centre for Global Competency, BancFirst, Inter-City Violin Studios and Glasser Bows.
Modeled after the traditional Taiwanese High Tea ceremony, come enjoy a cup of high mountain tea and light snacks from 3-4pm, then be prepared for a world-class performance from 4-5pm.
Admission is FREE to all UCO students, faculty members, staff, and the public community, but reservations are required due to limited seating.
Kyle and fellow Horseshoe Road member, Brent Saulsbury, will perform what the band will share with the world, including a performance of Callen Clarke's specially commissioned arrangement of a traditional Taiwanese song, which they'll perform with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra while in Taiwan. The afternoon wouldn't be complete without your favorite Horseshoe Road tunes, such as Faded Love and Orange Blossom Special.
As a special guest, UCO pianist and Taiwanese native, Ivan Wong, will be joining Kyle for some of the Taiwanese repertoire, as well as some Horseshoe Road favorites.
After auditioning last spring in St. Louis, Oklahoma’s favorite band has been selected from over 300 groups nationwide for American Music Abroad's 2013 program with a 35-day world tour beginning March 10th in Washington DC.
“We are so thrilled to find out that we’ll be sharing Oklahoma symphonic and roots music with the people of Korea, Taiwan, Burma and Russia,” said Kyle. “It’s quite an honor to represent our country, along with our great state.”
American Voices administers the American Music Abroad program on behalf of the United States Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The American Music Abroad program is designed to communicate America's rich musical contributions to the global music scene as it fosters cross-cultural communication and people-to-people connection to global audiences.
