Oklahoma City— One of Oklahoma City’s favorite shopping destinations is Penn Square Mall. Since its debut as an open-air mall in 1960, shoppers have flocked to the location at Northwest Expressway & Penn. At the holidays, Penn Square comes alive with the sights and sounds of the season.


On Saturday, Dec. 9, an Oklahoma City Philharmonic Brass Ensemble will treat shoppers to holiday hits in Center Court from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.


“Our brass players relish the opportunity to perform together at different places around the city,” said OKCPHIL General Manager and Bass Trombone player John Allen. “Anyone who comes over to Penn Square will hear some great Christmas music, from a strange song about someone’s poor grandmother having an unfortunate run-in with a clumsy reindeer, to just about any popular Christmas tune you have ever heard in your entire life!”


Concert tickets make great stocking-stuffers, and OKCPHIL staff will be on hand to sell tickets and Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate will answer questions about the second half of the season.


“At Penn Square Mall, we are thrilled to partner with the OKC Philharmonic this holiday season,” said Jill Farrand, Penn Square’s Director of Marketing & Business Development. “We are Oklahoma City’s leading fashion destination because of our excellent mix of over 140 specialty shops, dining choices, our theater and entertainment options. Having a special performance from the OKC Philharmonic during our busiest time of the year brings another festive vibe to the overall shopping experience.”
