The Complete Experience


A Tulsa Symphony concert  offers so much more than a two-hour performance! On each Classics concert evening, enjoy both a free pre-concert conversation with Tulsa Symphony guest conductors and a post-concert reception with Tulsa Symphony musicians.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these events are currently on hold.*

Conversation with the Conductor

Classics performances are preceded by a conversation with the conductor at 6:30 p.m. This Inside the Actors Studio-style presentation is held in the PAC’s Westby Pavilion and is hosted by Ken Busby.

Recognition Recital

Following the conversation with the guest conductor, walk next door to the LaFortune Room to enjoy live music performed by some of the area’s most talented young musicians. Many of these performers are the students of the orchestra musicians you will see on stage!

Tulsa Symphony Performance

Our concerts typically begin at 7:30 p.m.; doors to Chapman Music Hall at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center open at 7:00pm. Each concert approximately an hour and a half of world-class musicianship and creative programming with a 20-minute intermission.

Post-Concert Reception

Following each classics concert, enjoy the opportunity to chat with the symphony’s musicians, conductor, board members and staff in the Westby Pavilion. There, you can meet up with friends for a nightcap, coffee and/or dessert as well as discuss the night’s performance with your favorite horn player, the next educational event with a board member, or ask how exactly you become a professional bassoon player.

It’s not just a concert, it’s an experience!
