2017 OK Mozart International Music Festival

June 11, 2017 | 2 p.m.

Tulsa Symphony Orchestra (TSO) and Tulsa Children’s Chorus will premiere a new orchestral work by Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate, Chickasaw classical composer, on Sunday, June 11 at the 2017 OK Mozart International Music Festival. The foundation of the newly commissioned piece titled Muscogee Hymn Suite, is from within historic Creek Indian church hymns. Muscogee Hymn Suite is an adaptation and orchestration of traditional Muscogee (Creek) church hymns in the Muscogee (Creek) language. Joining TSO and Tulsa Children’s Chorus will be classical baritone soloist Grant Youngblood and traditional Mvskoke singer Curtis Scott, conducted by Gerhardt Zimmermann. A unique artistic result of European contact is the American Indian church hymn. As missionaries traveled across the early United States into Indian Country, they became one of the first to document Native languages and create translations of the Bible and other Christian texts, including church hymns. This blending of music and language lead to a new series of a hybrid music, composed by tribal citizens. For Southeast American Indians (Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee, Creek and Seminole) this beloved hybrid‐style of music is now more than 200 years old with a vast repertoire. American Indian church hymns are unmistakably native and is the third category of traditional Southeast American Indian music, alongside stomp dancing and timeworn folk songs.
