OKMMC Seasons

Seasons are artistic snapshots -

concentrated across a few weeks  (for example, Summer 2019). 

The organization produces multiple seasons each calendar year, allowing for a great variety of programming themes and performance outlets.

Preview

Audiences are able to familiarize themselves with the program ahead of time, in a pre-concert presentation and discussion of the repertoire to be performed. For those wanting to dive deeper into how music is constructed, educational materials are provided in the form of sheets/pamphlets with: definitions of musical terminology, visual diagrams of works performed on the concert, interviews with the composers, and more. 

Enjoy

OKMMC Mainstage concerts are around an hour long, and are always free.

Mingle

After each concert, performers and audience members are encouraged to mingle and form long-lasting relationships at an informal reception. 

OKMMC Ensembles

OKMMC is comprised of multiple ensembles that each serve to provide a different window to modern music.
