Ragtime Concert Postponed
OKCPHIL Announces the Postponement RAGTIME and All That Jazz Pops Program to March 5 and 6 2-17-21
The Oklahoma City Philharmonic announces the postponement of this weekend’s Pops Concert cycle Ragtime and All That Jazz to the weekend of March 5 and 6. For current ticket holders with streaming, dress rehearsal or the in person, socially distanced performance tickets, no further action is required, as your tickets will automatically be good for the new dates.
“The extreme weather this week has brought many challenges for the OKCPHIL family. The closures of many Covid testing sites coupled with hazardous road conditions pose significant challenges to our operations. As part of our strict safety protocols developed in conjunction with medical experts, testing for all staff, stagehands and each musician is an integral part of each concert cycle. This is designed to keep everyone on stage, backstage, and in the hall safe during our performances. This along with other weather-related logistical challenges has resulted in our decision to postpone Ragtime and All That Jazz to the weekend of March 5th and 6th.” Said Brent Hart, OKCPHIL Board President.
Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev, Executive Director of the OKCPHIL notes, “We greatly value the ongoing commitment, understanding, and flexibility our patrons bring to the work of the OKCPHIL. While we understand that the postponement of this concert is not ideal, we believe that we are making the right decision given this week’s circumstances. While the conditions might improve by this weekend, we are unable to move forward with our scheduled protocols, load-in necessary to prepare the stage for the production, as well as our orchestral rehearsal at this time. We look forward to bringing this program back onto our stage in just two weeks, when it is safe to do so. We greatly value your flexibility and spirit of pulling together during the challenges of this year, and we look forward to a more normal season ahead.”
