The Symphony Show House has been a longstanding Mother’s Day tradition for countless families in Oklahoma City. But this year, it was Mother Nature herself who has ended the 45-year streak. Portions of the historic Sunbeam Family Home were flooded during last weekend’s rains. The 90-year-old property is being converted to modern apartments and was slated to open for tours to the public on May 11.
“As we wrap up the exciting first season of the OKC Phil’s new music director Alexander Mickelthwate, this iconic property will open its doors to the public for the first time as a new concept. I don’t think people will want to miss this one—we’ve never had a Symphony Show House that has offered the chance to see 13 complete residences at once. The League is delighted to celebrate one more part of the cultural revival of Oklahoma City through this year's Symphony Show House."
