The first Symphony Show House premiered in Oklahoma City in 1973, and from the styles of the day it likely had gold shag carpet and avocado appliances! Times have certainly changed since the days of the Brady Bunch, but the Oklahoma City Philharmonic tradition of presenting a fabulous Show House continues.
This year, the 49th Annual OKCPHIL Symphony Show House is located in Edmond’s prestigious Fairview Farms, located at 1124 Fairview Farm Road. The Show House is open Saturday, May 14 through Sunday, May 29. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday and Saturdays 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
“This year’s 7,000 square foot home is stately and grand,” said J. Mark Taylor, Show House Chair. “It was built in 1995, and has four bedrooms with six baths. As soon as you walk in the front door, you are greeted with magnificent architectural features and soaring ceilings—along with views of the home’s spectacular pool and outdoor living spaces. And on certain days, our fabulous OKCPHIL musicians will perform in the Great Room, filling the home with stellar instrumental music as our guests stroll through 32 uniquely designed spaces.”
The Show House is owned by Keith and Truc-Mai Tran, and is presented in memory of Dr. Henry and Mrs. Josephine Freede. Proceeds from the Show House benefit the Education and Community Engagement programs funded by the OKCPHIL.
“Beyond providing our beautiful orchestral performances, we also reach deep into our community,” said Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev, OKCPHIL Executive Director. “Events like Symphony Show House help us fund a wide range of programs for students, families and adults of all ages. So when you tour this magnificent home, you’re not only gaining ideas for your own personal space—you’re helping support our vital programs. It’s a win-win situation!”
