  • When: July 3, 8-8:30 p.m.
  • Where: outside the front entrance of the VanTrease PACE on the TCC Southeast Campus located at 10300 East 81st Street

Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College will continue its annual 4th on the 3rd Concert tradition this year with a different look and sound due to COVID-19 concerns. The concert will feature the Signature Brass Quintet and be outdoors.

“Think of this as a drive-in concert on the parking lot of the VanTrease Performing Arts Center for Education. We are thrilled to bring live music to our friends and neighbors, while at the same time we designed this concert experience with the health and safety of our community as a priority,” said Joe Falvey, Signature Symphony at TCC manager.

The 30-minute, free, outdoor concert at 8 p.m., Friday, July 3, will be outside the front entrance of the VanTrease PACE on the TCC Southeast Campus located at 10300 East 81st Street. The concert includes favorites such as “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “America the Beautiful,” “St. Louis Blues,” and “The Stars and Stripes Forever” performed by Signature Quintet members Benjamin Hay, trumpet; Jeff Loud, trumpet; Marsha Wilson, horn; Brian Haapanen, trombone; and Brett Nichols, tuba.

“Bring your family and friends to listen from the comfort and safety of your car. You can listen through your car radio or download the free AudioFetch app for a truly modern concert experience,” said Kelly Clark, Dean of Visual and Performing Arts at TCC.

Plus, audience members can also choose to bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the concert in the open air from one of the nearby lawns. The parking lot and lawns open at 7:30 p.m. and concert starts at 8 p.m.

Signature Symphony at TCC asks all concertgoers to follow recommended physical distancing guidelines which includes maintaining at least six feet apart between you and others outside your family unit and wearing face coverings when outside of vehicles.

This concert is subject to cancelation based on any changes in TCC event protocol or City of Tulsa guidelines on public gatherings. If you have questions, call the PACE ticket office at 918-595-7777 or email signature@tulsacc.edu.


BIXBY FREEDOM CELEBRATION

  • Where: Bentley Park Sports Complex, 8505 E. 148th St. S., Bixby

The Bixby Freedom Celebration is the largest free public fireworks extravaganza in this area.  For the past five years, The Bridge Church has presented this fun-packed family event to the community. Once again, a spectacular firework show is on tap for July 3, 2020.

Changes for Bixby Freedom Celebration 2020

Following suggested regulations, there are a few changes we have had to make. The fireworks will be launched from the NW corner of Bentley Park at 9:45pm (same as last year). However, there will be no kids zone, stage program, or firefighter challenge.

The fireworks show will be as spectacular as ever and can be seen for miles. You are welcome to watch the show with your family and friends in and around the park, from afar, or stay in your car – whatever you are comfortable with! Follow us on Facebook for up-to-the-minute details.

If allowed, we will have a few Food trucks.

*No personal tents, shelters or fireworks.
