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, conducted by Music Director Michael Morgan. 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.
