Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — After auditioning last spring in St. Louis, Oklahoma’s favorite band, Kyle Dillingham & Horseshoe Road, has been selected from more than 300 groups nationwide for American Music Abroad’s 2013 program with a 35-day world tour beginning March 11 in Washington, D.C.

“We are so thrilled to find out that we’ll be sharing Oklahoma symphonic and roots music with the people of Korea, Taiwan, Burma and Russia,” Dillingham said. “It’s quite an honor to represent our country, along with our great state.”

American Voices administers the American Music Abroad program on behalf of the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

To kick off the 2013 world tour, Dillingham and Horseshoe Road will perform in concert at 8 p.m. Friday at the Oklahoma Judicial Center Auditorium, 2100 N. Lincoln Blvd., in Oklahoma City.

The event is free, but reservations are required.

Entrance to the event is through the west side of the Judicial Center. Parking is available in the Judicial Center and State Capitol parking lots. An elevator is located at the right of the entrance staircase.
