Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College continues its annual patriotic summer tradition, 4th on the 3rd, with a few modifications for 2021. Like last year, this concert is free and will be outdoors on the TCC Southeast Campus, 10300 East 81st Street (81st Street and Highway 169) in Tulsa. In addition, there will be trucks from Andolini’s Pizzeria and Freckles Frozen Custard featuring Rex’s Chicken for concert goers to purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages.
The Signature Symphony corporate season sponsor is TTCU Federal Credit Union.
“Celebrating traditions such as our annual concert, while different this year and last year due to the pandemic, helped us make it through these challenging months. We have missed seeing members of the Signature family but welcome this opportunity to hear live music in a shared collective experience,” said Kelly Clark, School of Visual and Performing Arts dean.
The one-hour live concert featuring the Signature Quartet and Signature Brass Quintet will celebrate America’s independence. The evening will include patriotic music such as “America the Beautiful,” “Shenandoah,” “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Simple Gifts,” and “Armed Forces Salute.”
The Signature Quartet features Corbin Bodley, violin; Sarah Thomas, violin; Jeff Smith, viola; and Erica Parker, cello. The Signature Brass Quintet features Benjamin Hay, trumpet; Jeff Loud, trumpet; Marsha Wilson, horn; Rich Fisher, trombone; and Brett Nichols, tuba.
The 4th on the 3rd concert is 8 p.m., Saturday, July 3, 2021, outside the Student Success and Career Center on the TCC Southeast Campus. Individuals are encouraged to bring family and friends along with lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the concert in the open air. Food trucks will have food and beverages available starting at 7 p.m., an hour before the concert begins.
“While there is no ticket cost to attend the 4th on the 3rd concert, I hope people would consider making a gift to Signature Symphony’s educational programs and performances. We are grateful to our community’s ongoing support of the arts,” said Clark.
Gifts to Signature Symphony can be made online.
Signature Symphony at TCC is currently working on finalizing plans for the 2021-2022 season and will announce the schedule later this summer including the search for the orchestra’s new artistic director.
