Maestro Franco Autori, is a conductor from Italy. He then came to the States and was the Conductor for the New York Philharmonic. When the oil boom hit Tulsa, The Phillips family (Phillips 66 gas...) asked Maestro Franco Autori to come to Tulsa and head up the Tulsa Philharmonic. He did. When he passed away, he left an endowment fund to scholarship music students at the university. I was selected as the artist for this project. The endowment wanted to have a sculpture of Maestro Franco Autori so that the students could see him. Maestro Franco Autori [c] Brenda Angel 1996. All rights reserved.
