Music in the Gardens, scheduled from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 24 at the OSU Botanic Garden, is an open-air concert and event celebrating the community of artists, performers, composers and scholars who comprise the Department of Music at Oklahoma State University.
Vocal and instrumental performances will be highlighted at various locations throughout Oklahoma State University’s beautiful Botanic Garden, blending sight and sound.
The event will include wine and heavy hors d’oeuvre, with proceeds directly benefiting the Department of Music and its exciting future at OSU. Tickets are still available for $100 each and can be purchased at OSUgiving.com/Music-in-the-Gardens. Sponsorship opportunities are also still available.
“The Department of Music has enriched lives through music education, performance and research for generations, and we’re gathering to celebrate that. For more than 100 years the department has influenced the lives of Oklahomans and students from across the nation and world,” said the event’s co-chairs, Carol Stewart and Meredith Woodward Gardner.
“The event’s backdrop at the vibrant OSU Botanic Garden illustrates the interconnectedness of the visual and performing arts at OSU and the momentum generated by an increased dedication to music, performances and access to the arts in Stillwater,” they added, specifically referencing The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts being constructed on campus.
Music in the Gardens is hosted by the OSU Friends of Music, a group of volunteers dedicated to the advancement of music education at Oklahoma State.
