The Oklahoma City Philharmonic has been around in its current state since 1988 when Joel Levine and a number of city leaders formed it. Before then, the Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra was widely known and popular for decades. The Philharmonic now has performances from September to May with a Classical and Pops concert series as well as the Discovery Family Concert Series. They also have signature holiday concerts and educational outreach concerts.
The Discovery Family Concert series includes one hour shows specifically designed to entertain and educate 4 to 13 year olds. Along with the music, kids can try the Instrument Playground and meet Phil the Penguin.
Season tickets are available as are single event tickets through the Philharmonic website. Other options include a Flex 4 pack and ticket buying at select Homeland stores. Prices range from $12 to $75, depending on seating, for single events. For the Discovery Family series, adult tickets are $9 and children are $6.
Dress and Manners:
Children under 5 are not permitted except for the Discovery concerts and "A Very Merry Pops."
Support the Philharmonic:
Joel Levine, Music Director for the Philharmonic, has been around since its inception and has truly created the key Oklahoma destination for those interested in orchestral music. Famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma once called Levine a "remarkable musician and visionary."
And performance is only one of the things the Oklahoma City Philharmonic does. They are also committed to a number of educational activities for kids including youth concerts, school-based programs and scholarships for young musicians.
Don't miss the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. Make it part of an evening out filled with culture and masterful entertainment.
