Flooding at 2019 Symphony Show House Moves Tour Dates to June 8-16, 2019


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.

“The good news is the Symphony Show House is delayed, but not canceled,” says Lisa Reed, Executive
Director of the OKC Orchestra League, which hosts the Symphony Show House each year . “Perhaps we
will be starting a new Father’s Day tradition instead!” The Symphony Show House will be held on June
8-16, 2019, ending on the Sunday of Father’s Day.
Hours for the Symphony Show House will be 11 am-7 pm daily. Tickets are $15 if purchased before the
tours open on June8, or $20 after the tours begin and will be available at okcorchestraleague.org and
other ticket outlets, including discounted tickets at Mathis Brothers. Group rates are also available. The
deadline for sponsorships has been extended to May 15 th and some Show House Evenings slots are still
available.

Rita Dearmon, Chair of the 2019 Symphony Show House, says designers, volunteers and patrons have
taken the change in stride. “Not a single person has complained of the inconvenience. They’ve simply
said, ‘What can we do to make it work?’ We’re so fortunate to have such committed partners.We hope
the public will join us in June and reward them for all of their hard work.”
More than just a home tour, the Symphony Show House has served as a vital source of charitable
fundraising for the OKC Philharmonic and music education programs for the last 46 years. Businesses,
organizations and individuals can reach both marketing and philanthropic goals through a variety of
opportunities. To volunteer, advertise, sponsor, reserve an evening or for more information, contact the
League at (405) 232-7575, execdir@okcorchestraleague.org or visit okcorchestraleague.org.
