Take a tour and have lunch " or even plan your own private evening event " at the Oklahoma City Orchestra League's 2009 Symphony Show House, 431 N.W. 17th.
One of the organization's largest fund-raisers, the 17-room, 4,600-square-foot historic Heritage Hills villa was built in 1918 and has stood to witness quite a bit of Oklahoma's history.

Event proceeds benefit the educational programs of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and the Orchestra League.
"It's a wonderful entertainment," said Jeanne Jackson, an organization spokeswoman. "They're going to see some wonderful decor, and they're going to be supporting a really good cause for their community."
