Red White and Boom Postponement
Oklahoma City Philharmonic Postpones annual “Red, White and Boom” concert due to COVID-19.
June 5th, 2020
Out of an abundance of caution, and with the health, wellbeing and safety of our audience members, musicians, and staff in mind, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic announces the postponement of its annual signature July 3rd Independence Day celebration “Red, White and Boom”.
Scheduled to move from State Fair Park to Scissortail Park this summer, this annual celebration attracts up to 30,000 each year. OKCPHIL Executive Director Agnieszka Rakhmatullaev says “Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make this difficult, but necessary, decision. Bringing together large crowds both on and off the stage, to experience and share the power of music, presents very difficult challenges in this environment.”
The Phil will continue to explore the possibility of presenting another free community outdoor concert later this summer. Additionally, with new technological advances we seek to expand the variety of ways we provide education, engagement, and performance experiences to continue to serve our community.
We’d like to thank founding presenting sponsor, the Inasmuch Foundation, and other sponsors and community partners for their long standing commitment to the performing arts. These annual “Red White Boom” partners include The Oklahoman, Magic 104, I Heart Media, Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages, the Oklahoma Arts Council, Allied Arts and Adventure Road. We are truly grateful for the generosity of these supporters, especially during these challenging times. We at the OKCPHIL thank our community for their ongoing consideration and support!
We thank you for your ongoing commitment to bringing live orchestral music back to our community.
