Final concerts of the 2019-2020 Season postponed
As a result of the Mayor’s order regarding events at city-owned properties, The Tulsa Performing Arts Center has gone dark until April 15th. Because of this, our final concert weekend of the season with the Miró Quartet, originally scheduled for April 4 & 5, will be postponed and rescheduled. Additionally, our April 23rd special concert with the Akropolis Reed Quintet has been postponed.
We are looking forward to rescheduling these activities when it is safe to do so. The health and safety of our community is vitally important to us, and we are all doing our part. We are actively discussing options with Akropolis and Miró’s management, the TPAC, and the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture. We will be in touch as soon as we have settled on a new date.
We look forward to a time when we can share the transformative and healing power of live chamber music with you again. In the meantime, stay safe and be well!

Join us for an open rehearsal where the Miró Quartet will work with Puts and demonstrate his new piece, "Home" , co-commissioned by Chamber Music Tulsa.
This event will provide fascinating "behind-the-scene" insights into the composer's thoughts and what "really" happens at a rehearsal of a professional chamber music ensemble.
This event is free and open to the public!

Thursday, April 23, 2020 - 6:30 p.m.
Gather at the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture Offices, 633. Boston
Start with a group of imaginative chamber musicians, add historic downtown Tulsa buildings, mix in some cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and voilà, a “progressive concert” party!
The Akropolis Quintet (oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, and saxophone!) regularly appears in unconventional settings and they were eager to work with us to create a unique event for our 66th season.
We will move from lobby to lobby, enjoying architectural highlights in each, courtesy of the experts from the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, and enjoy music by Akropolis at selected sites.
