David Amram & Friends in Concert

The Okllahoma Jazz Hall of Fame welcomes multi-instrumentalist and world-renowned composer David Amram back to the Jazz Depot stage.

Jazz Hall inductee David Amram has composed more than one hundred orchestral and chamber music workds, while penning many scores for both Broadway and film. He is widely known for his classic scores for the films, “Splendor in the Grass” and “Manchurian Candidate,” as well as the score for the landmark 1959 documentary, “Pull My Daisy” and two operas. Amram is also the author of three books. An inventively funny improvisational lyricist, Amram is a pioneer player of jazz French horn, a virtuoso on piano, numerous flutes and whistles, percussion, and dozens of folkloric instruments from twenty-five countries. While traveling the world as a conductor, soloist, bandleader, visiting scholar, and narrator in five languages, Amram continues to compose.
