Tulsa Botanic Garden and Signature Symphony at TCC host “Botanic Brass,” a picturesque sunset concert against the backdrop of the garden. The partnership between the two brings together the sounds of chamber music and the visuals of “Autumn in the Garden,” which is a celebration of the changing of the season.
“Botanic Brass” is Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Tulsa Botanic Garden with doors opening at 4 p.m. and the Signature Brass Quintet concert on the peninsula lawn at 6 p.m. Prior to the concert, the Signature String Quartet will play at 5:15 p.m. in the garden.
“Creative and different is this year’s theme. When the Tulsa Botanic Garden reached out to Signature Symphony, we knew we could provide our community with a magical escape for an evening of music and nature. This event brings art and cultural together in safe ways for artists and audience,” said Kelly Clark, Dean of Visual and Performing Arts at TCC.
In honor of Tulsa’s great Oktoberfest legacy, the Signature Brass Quintet will perform an hour-long concert with Bavarian, Polka, Austrian & German music. Beer, wine, and food will be available for purchase on site. Families can bring in food but no outside alcohol is allowed. For the concert, you can bring chairs or blankets for spreading out on the peninsula lawn and nearby.
With plenty to see and do, families are encouraged to arrive early to stroll and explore the lush gardens and water features as well as the Botanic Garden’s annual “Autumn in the Garden” celebration with a display of more than 5,000 pumpkins, a hay maze and scarecrows made by the Tulsa community.
“With the idea of bringing science, beauty, culture and art together, we’ve dreamed of a collaboration like this since we opened. For us, a garden is nature’s performing art. Like music, our Garden has movements measured in seasons and offers inspiration and rejuvenation,” said Pat Woodrum, Tulsa Botanic Garden Interim President & CEO.
