Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College is moving the upcoming concert, “A New Beginning” to an indoor facility due to the rain forecasted for the weekend. The concert, set for Friday, April 23 at 8 p.m., will be at the Union Multipurpose Activity Center, or UMAC, at 6836 S. Mingo Road. Tickets are on sale now. 
The venue has changed, but the concert is the same. The live, full orchestra concert features music from films such as “Star Wars” and “The Magnificent Seven” with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture as the grand finale with the Union High School Renegade Regiment Marching Band. 
“You never know Oklahoma weather and with this week’s snow, record-setting low temperatures and rain forecast, we wanted to ensure the show can go on safely, regardless of mother nature,” said Kelly Clark, Dean of TCC’s School of Visual and Performing Arts. 
The UMAC is spacious enough to accommodate all musicians and patrons indoors while maintaining physical distance. Tickets will be limited to less than 20 percent of the UMAC capacity. All Tulsa Health Department health and safety guidelines will be followed throughout the facility with face masks required except when actively eating or drinking. 
For the performance, Signature Symphony is partnering with Union Public Schools and the school’s nationally recognized music program. “A New Beginning” represents the first live in-person performance this school year for Union’s Renegade Regiment and students have been preparing for several months. 
“I know our students have missed the sound of applause and this provides our high school seniors a special performance as a member of the Renegade Regiment before graduation,” said Charles Pisarra, Union band director. 
General admission tickets are $20. Tickets will not be sold at the door and are available online until 8 p.m. the night of the concert. All tickets are non-refundable. Free parking is available west of the UMAC. For more information, visit, email, or call 918-595-7777. 
The 2020-2021 Signature Symphony season is sponsored by TTCU Federal Credit Union. There are several virtual concerts and in-person concerts in May. This project is supported in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Oklahoma and the National Endowment for the Arts.
