OKC Philharmonic Presents: Overture Master Class: Jerod Tate

As part of the OKC Philharmonic’s continued pursuit to provide inspiration and joy for the community through orchestral music, the Philharmonic's young professionals group, Overture, is honored to bring Emmy Award winning composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate to Artspace at Untitled for one special evening of food and music. During this free-to-attend event, Tate will share an exciting master class on creativity, his work, and his process.

Tate is dedicated to the development of American Indian classical composition in what The New York Times calls, “a new musical stream unsullied by Hollywood and tourist stereotypes.” Jerod Tate possesses the rare “ability to effectively infuse classical music with American Indian nationalism.” (Washington Post)

His commissioned works have been performed by the National Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony and Chorus, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Canterbury Voices, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, Colorado Ballet, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Philadelphia Classical Symphony, and Santa Fe Desert Chorale. He is a three-time commission recipient of the American Composers Forum and he received a 2011 Emmy Award for his work on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority documentary, The Science of Composing.
