Wynton Marsalis may not have written his first symphony in response to the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. But one would be hard-pressed to think of a more appropriate way officially to conclude the city of Tulsa’s commemoration of this tragedy than with a performance of this epic work.

Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra joined forces with the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, and a group of singers drawn from some 50 local churches, schools and arts organizations under the name of the Tulsa Community Commemoration Choir, to perform “All Rise: Symphony No. 1,” Sunday afternoon at the BOK Center.
