      Oakland Symphony: 'Guys and Dolls' in Concert

      Continuing its long-standing and popular American Masterworks series exploring important works of musical theater, the Oakland Symphony will close its 2016-2017 season with a concert version of the 1950 Tony-Award winning Guys and Dolls with music by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows Friday, May 19, at 8 pm at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland. Conducted by Music Director Michael Morgan, the performance will feature the Oakland Symphony, members of the Oakland Symphony Chorus, Lynne Morrow, Director; and singers Ben Jones, Annie Sherman, Tami Dahbura, J. Raymond Meyers, Adam Flowers and Blake Cline. The evening will also feature Brian Nies conducting Richard Rodgers' Overture to Oklahoma and Waltz from Carousel and Jule Styne's Overture to Gypsy. A pre-performance talk will be given by John Kendall Bailey at 7 pm and is free to ticket holders. The performance is sponsored in part by Bell Investment Advisors.

      "This has always been one of my favorite musicals and considered by many a great one," says Music Director Michael Morgan. "It was only after I started talking about including it as an American Masterwork that I learned how very many fans the piece has amongst the public. I am happy to be able to share my admiration of the piece with the symphony audience. It's also just plain fun."
