Festival of Arts/Ideas

USAO
November 1-2

The fourth Festival of Arts and Ideas (FAI) is scheduled Nov. 1-2 at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Faculty and guest artists will explore The Creative Process in this two day multidisciplinary event, organized much like previous FAI events at USAO and featuring music, art, drama, academic insights and more.

Both events are set in the USAO Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, as the series is underwritten by the USAO Foundation. Performers include each of the five musical groups at USAO, as well as faculty and special guests.

The theme ties perfectly to Oklahoma’s hosting of the World Creativity Forum in November. This international event will bring people from several dozen countries into Oklahoma City for speakers and presentations on creativity.

In this festival, musical guests include the USAO Concert Choir, the Key Players of USAO, a combo led by Joe Settlemires, composer Dr. Stephen Weber, and student Joshua Smith.

The continuing USAO series -- Festival of Arts and Ideas – followed the university’s two-year Five B’s Festival series led by renowned violinist Yuval Waldman, who conceived and performed in all five festivals with faculty, students and guests.
