USAO’s Davis-Waldorf series rings in the holidays with “Winter Wonderland”
The music of the holiday season will fill the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma’s Davis Hall Little Theater as the 19th season of the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series continues on Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. M-PACT will perform “Winter Wonderland,” an a cappella vocal jazz concert featuring traditional and contemporary songs and carols.
Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for students and seniors 60 and over. They may be purchased at the door, online at usao.edu/dwpas or by calling 405-574-1213.
Based in Los Angeles and celebrating more than two decades of music, M-PACT combines vocal acrobatics, innovative arrangements and a commanding stage presence that has mesmerized audiences in fine arts halls and jazz festivals across four continents. The sextet has appeared with superstar artists from Boyz II Men and Natasha Bedingfield to Ray Charles and Natalie Cole.
“When we plan the performing arts series, we aim to provide access to high-quality events of diverse styles. It has been a while since we presented a holiday concert,” said Katie Davis, professor of theatre arts and DWPAS series coordinator. “The artists of M-PACT have a reputation as world-class performers and “Winter Wonderland” has rave reviews. We’re excited to create this opportunity for the students and our neighbors to celebrate together. One of the singers, Jeff Smith, is an OKC native, so we also get to welcome him home for the holidays!”
The USAO Foundation presents the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series with additional support from the Oklahoma Arts Council, Chickasha Public School Foundation, Mid-America Arts Alliance and community and corporate partners. Its mission is to encourage attendance at high-quality performing arts events as an aspect of a liberal arts education for our students, to provide an affordable entertainment resource for our college family and our community, and to become a leader in local arts education by presenting relevant and culturally diverse programming that reflects and broadens the aesthetic of our audiences.
