 Notes & Reviews
New Music. New Audience. New Experience. Callen Clarke - Composer Kyle Dillingham - Solo Violin Normandie (Oklahoma Community Orchestra, John Fletcher) Callen and Kyle's first collaboration piece, premiered by the the Edmond North Orchestra in 2008. The SS Normandie was arguably the most beautiful ship ever built, but it was lost in a tragic fire in 1942. Since it's premiere, 'Normandie' has been performed over a dozen times with various orchestras and ensembles. The Argosy Overture (University of Central Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra, Ralph Morris) Callen and Kyle's first funded commission, by the Centre for Global Competency at the University of Central Oklahoma. This overture for solo violin and orchestra was premiered in 2009 and tells the story of a global explorer, transformed by his adventures abroad. 'The Argosy Overture' has also been performed multiple times since it's premiere. The Mary Rose (Oklahoma Community Orchestra, John Fletcher) This Tribute to the flagship of King Henry VIII laid the groundwork for new Oklahoma-Great Britain relations. HRH Prince Charles sent two delegates from the Mary Rose Trust to be in Oklahoma City for the premiere in 2009. The immense success of 'The Mary Rose' proved that symphonic music can be used as a vessel for growing new audience, strengthening community and building international relations. Wiley Post (Demo arranged for keyboard, Callen Clarke) Commissioned by the Oklahoma History Center, Wiley Post was premiered at the 2011 OK Mozart Festival with the Amici New York Orchestra, James Bagwell conducting. This Tone Poem for violin and orchestra depicts the life of Wiley Post from his humble rearing in rural Northeast Oklahoma to his worldwide fame and shocking death. Wiley was the first pilot to fly solo around the world. He discovered the jet stream and developed the pressure suit that paved the way for space travel. Life Symphony (Demo arranged for keyboard, Callen Clarke) In 2007, Clarke had the idea to write a symphony that 'conveys the value of human life' - a piece with the intent that 'life is worth living.' In 2012 Dillingham premiered this violin symphony with the Amici NY Orchestra as the Grand Finale of the OK Mozart Festival in both Bartlesville and Oklahoma City. The 'Life Symphony' depicts the arc of a human life in 7 movements. The 'Nocturne' is without complexity of any kind - an idealization of childhood experience, dream-like and serene. Kyle Dillingham started playing the violin when he was nine and received his bachelor's degree in instrumental music performance from Oklahoma City University. He is an Oklahoma Creativity Ambassador and was a 2009 recipient of the OK Governor's Art's Award. Kyle also works as the 'Ambassador in Residence' at the University of Central Oklahoma, using his 'musical diplomacy' to help develop and strengthen new overseas relationships for the university. While still in high school, Kyle was featured twice on Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. He has performed for the King of Malaysia, the Princess of Thailand, Singapore's National Day Celebration, and his performance at the Beijing Central Conservatory was broadcast on Chinese national television. A frequent visitor to Washington D.C, he has performed for the Japanese, Thai and Saudi Arabian Ambassadors, to name a few. He has also performed several times with Roy Clarke and Hank Thompson. He has been soloist with the Amici New York Orchestra, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, the Enid Symphony Orchestra, the UCO Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra and the Oklahoma Community Orchestra. Kyle has taken his music to over 30 countries earning him the title of 'Oklahoma's Musical Ambassador.' Callen Clarke, of Edmond, Oklahoma, began composing at the age of five when his family moved to Oklahoma. He was encouraged to become a symphonic composer at the age of ten by his piano teacher, Virginia Campbell, an Oklahoma-based pianist of international reputation. Clarke studied composition at Oklahoma City University under Dr. Ray Luke and Frank Payne while minoring in piano performance. Later he contin
