Colin Currie is sure to ’phone in his performance with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic — vibraphone, that is. The percussionist is adept at solos on the marimba, blocks and drum sets, too, so no wonder the event carries the title of Motion & Emotion. Copland and Tchaikovsky are among those on tap for the 8 p.m. Saturday concert at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. Tickets are $25- $52. Call 232-7575 or visit okcphilharmonic.org.
