Virtual chamber concert
The Signature Symphony had to postpone the virtual performance by trumpeter Ben Hay of Adam Cuthbért's composition "sonata for trumpet and launchpad" because of inclement weather. The performance has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27.
Cuthbért's work makes use of the Ableton Live software, and the “launchpad” is used to trigger different pre-programmed musical events in the software. The trumpet’s sound can be changed through different filters, similar to effects pedals for an electric guitar.
Hay will perform three of the work’s five movements — “autoshifter,” “zenbu no hikari” and “still life with synthetic flora.” Cost is $10. To register: signaturesymphony.org.
'War Horse' play on film
The Tulsa PAC's "Broadway on Film" series concludes with the drama "War Horse" at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Tulsa PAC, 101 E. Third St.
