Join us for our 2020-2021 Signature Series Season Opener featuring a unique Drive-In Movie Theatre Concert with live performances of classic and retro film music arranged for piano by Irish composer, Dr. Christopher Norby.

Dr. Norby and Stephen Cook will perform brand new arrangements of iconic Bernard Hermann scores like Psycho, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and North by Northwest as well as a variety of other memorable cinematic works.

The east side of our building will serve as our Drive-In Theatre complete with projections and an out-door stage for the musicians.

Guests can experience the concert from the safety of their own cars or in socially distanced outdoor seating.

Due to covid-19, we will not be serving refreshments but you are welcome to bring your own popcorn, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Costumes are encouraged (the theme is 1950s drive-in).

There will be two showtimes with limited spaces available so please act fast:

Mystery Variations

Oracle Piano Society Artistic Director, Dr. Stephen Cook is preparing a set of rarely performed variations for the 2020-2021 Oracle Piano Society concert season.

He will upload portions of the work little by little. Once he has shared all of the variations, (which will be recorded in no particular order), he will reveal the theme.

Thanks to the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek and the Universitäts und Landesbibliothek Bonn for providing the manuscript.

Poised to become the next great American music festival, the Oracle Piano Society delivers piano and other musical programs of exceptional quality and artistry to the beautiful high-desert rural community of Oracle, Arizona.

We create transformative cultural opportunities for students and members of the community through innovative performances and dynamic educational events.
