Since 1973, the Symphony Show House has been one of Oklahoma City’s most-anticipated spring events.
Now celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic presents this year's Show House May 6 – 21 at 6713 Grand Boulevard in Nichols Hills. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
“We are excited about the highly visible, fabulous location of this year’s house,” said Blossom Crews, OKCPHIL Development Director. “It was built in 1949, in Colonial Revival style, and is situated on a beautiful 1.25-acre estate. It has more than 2,000 square feet of outdoor entertaining space, and the house itself retains many significant historical and original features.”
The designers selected for this year’s Show House have taken inspiration from the traditional style of the home, Crews said. Visitors can expect to see luxurious textures and sumptuous furnishings throughout the main house, and a bit of the unexpected in the 1,500 square foot pool house.
Proceeds from the Show House benefit the OKCPHIL’s Education and Community Engagement programs.
“Our primary mission is providing inspiration and joy through orchestral music,” said Brent Hart, OKCPHIL Executive Director. “Our activities extend into the community, bringing students into the fold with our education programs, music competitions and ‘Spotlight School’ series. Our family-oriented Discovery concerts are a fun way to introduce children to the world of music. All of these programs and more are directly funded through proceeds from the Symphony Show House.”
Tickets may be purchased online beginning in mid-April at okcphil.org along with more information programming.
