Oklahoma City Philharmonic Presents Annual “Red, White & Boom!”
One of Oklahoma City’s most-anticipated summer traditions returns as your Oklahoma City Philharmonic presents the annual “Red, White and Boom,” Sunday, July 3, beginning at 8:30 p.m. at Scissortail Park.
“Please join us for this wonderful summer concert,” said Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate, Music Director for OKCPHIL. “Our program will be full of patriotic music that celebrates America’s independence. Immediately following our performance, a spectacular fireworks display will illuminate the Oklahoma City skyline. How exciting this will be to welcome our friends to Scissortail Park and share in the joy of music and celebrate our nation’s birthday.”
Presenting sponsor for “Red, White and Boom” is the Inasmuch Foundation. Admission is free, and guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, blanket and whatever they need to enjoy the performance. The first 5,000 guests will receive a free Oklahoma City Philharmonic fan, and limited edition “OKCPHIL” t-shirts will be for sale.
“We love giving back to the community,” Mickelthwate added. “Of course, we hope everyone joins us for our fabulous Classics and Pops concerts. But our community outreach goes far beyond that. And ‘Red, White and Boom’ lets us celebrate not only our nation’s independence, but also brings us together as a community and a family. So, we hope to see you at Scissortail Park on Sunday, July 3!”
