OKCPHIL Presents Gaylord Discovery Family Concert “It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Super-Philharmonic!”

The Oklahoma City Philharmonic continues its E.L. and Thelma Gaylord Discovery Family Series with “It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Superphilharmonic!” Sunday, Feb. 5, 2 p.m. at Civic Center Music Hall.

Guest Conductor Ron Spigelman and the OKCPHIL will take the audience on a musical journey around the world as they track Superman’s progress to the Civic Center.  As Superman circles the globe you might hear “Toreador” from Bizet’s Carmen as he crosses over Spain, “Great Gate of Kyiv” as he crosses Ukraine, and “Stars and Stripes Forever” as he enters the United States.

Our Discovery Family Series includes music from movie tunes and classics to popular songs played by the full orchestra. Performances take place in the Thelma Gaylord Theater concert hall at the Civic Center and last about an hour. Musical programming is geared to children ages 4 to 13, and the pre-concert lobby activities include arts, crafts, dance, and games related to the theme of the concert. All of the pre-concert fun begins an hour before each Discovery Concert.

Tickets start at only $9.  All Discovery Family Series tickets are general admission tickets, so patrons can choose the best seats in the house.  Share the joy of music with the children in your life through our Discovery Family Series. These family-friendly concerts make music come to life while providing an enriching experience sure to instill a lifelong love of music.

Tickets for “It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Super-Philharmonic!” are on sale now at the OKCPHIL Box Office at or by phone at 405-TICKETS.
