Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s Red, White & BOOM! Returns July 3 to Scissortail Park

Oklahoma City – Oklahoma City Philharmonic returns to Scissortail Park for one of Oklahoma City’s most-anticipated summer events Red, White & BOOM!, Wednesday July 3, 8:30 p.m. Red, White and BOOM! is a family friendly event allowing guests to experience an evening of patriotic music, family fun and fireworks.

“The atmosphere for ‘Red, White & BOOM!’ is electrifying,” said Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate, OKCPHIL Music Director. “The patriotic music, the cheering crowd, the fireworks. Last year we welcomed 25,000 people to the park, and this year we expect even more. It’s an exciting evening of music and magic celebrating our nation’s independence.”

Admission is free, and guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, blanket and whatever is needed to enjoy the performance. OKCPHIL t-shirts, tote bags, and the latest CD, Of Thee I Sing will be available for purchase.

Sponsors for “Red, White and BOOM!” are Scissortail Park, Oklahoma Craft and Omni Hotels.

“Next season we have a fabulous lineup of concerts,” Mickelthwate said. “But events like Red, White & BOOM! allows us to celebrate the birth of our nation while coming together as a community and family. We feel the love from Oklahoma City, and we give it right back! We hope to see everyone July 3rd at Scissortail Park!”
