The Sunday Twilight Concert Series presented by the Chickasaw Nation returns to the Myriad Botanical Gardens this summer.
The concerts will take place each Sunday from June 5 – August 28, with the exception of the weekend of July 4.
“The Sunday Twilight Concert Series gives the community the opportunity to experience live music in a fun, relaxed environment,” said Arts Council Oklahoma City Projects Director Alyssa Flesher. “There’s no better way to spend a summertime Sunday evening than with a free performance surrounded by the beauty of the Myriad Botanical Gardens”
Twelve bands in a variety of genres, including rock & roll, country, jazz, classical, and Latin music, will perform on the Devon Lawn at 7:30 each Sunday night.
“Each artist was chosen through an application process, as well as general talent scouting throughout the year,” said Arts Council Oklahoma City Executive Director Peter Dolese. “Every summer, we make it a point to bring in bands of all genres and backgrounds to ensure the Summer Twilight Concert Series offers something for everyone in our community. Each diverse artist we bring to the stage will continue our legacy of providing culture and free music to all.”
The summer of fun kicks off Sunday, June 5 with a rock performance by Beau Jennings & The Tigers. That event will kick off with the Artisans Twilight Takeover, a free networking event with ACOKC’s group for young professionals.
“The Artisans is one of the few young professionals’ groups in Oklahoma City that does not require a monetary donation to participate,” Flesher said. “We are exclusively made up of people ages 21 – 40 who have a passion for the arts and a desire to volunteer for Arts Council OKC’s events. Come join us at 6:30 p.m. June 5 for a night of networking, food, live music, and fun!”
