Overture Society

The Associate Board created the Overture Society Membership to foster community around music for young professionals. Overture Society provides a society for music lovers to meet and socialize, network with established and up-and-coming Oklahoma professionals, and engage in philanthropic and volunteer opportunities. In addition, a membership in the Overture Society provides discounts to OKCPHIL concerts, advanced notice of add-on concerts, exclusive invitations to pre and post-concert events, and opportunities to interact with the OKCPHIL Music Director, musicians, and sometimes even guest artists!
