"Performance of the year"

Easily the most spectacular and impressive performance of the year was “The Passion of Joan de Arc” in OU’s Holmberg Hall. It combined a Richard Einhorn composition performed by the Norman Philharmonic and the University’s School of Music combined student choirs with a screening of Carl Dreyer’s 1928 motion picture classic. The intensity of sound, emotional content of the story and sheer virtuosity of the players made for an overwhelming experience. — Doug Hill, Norman Transcript, Dec 29, 2017
