Video: Cellist Zuill Bailey performing Saturday with Oklahoma City Philharmonic

by Brandy McDonnell Published: March 1, 2013

Zuill Bailey, a cellist who holds degrees from the Peabody Conservatory and the Juilliard School, will give his debut performance with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N Walker.

Titled “Force of Destiny,” it will be the first OKC Philharmonic classics concert to

feature Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in C Major.”

“It’s like champagne or crystal — beautiful and simple,” Bailey told The Oklahoman Fine Arts Editor Rick Rogers.

“The ear accepts it immediately. Whether you’re a listener or a performer, it just feels right. I think of it as a festive celebration piece.”

In addition to Haydn’s “Cello Concerto in C Major,” Oklahoma City Philharmonic music director Joel Levine has programmed Verdi’s 1862 overture to “La Forza del Destino” and Brahms’ “Symphony No. 1 in C Minor” of 1876.
