Tracing its roots to the city’s first professional orchestra in 1924, the Oklahoma City Philharmonic formed in 1988 under the musical direction of Joel Levine with the help of many civic leaders and corporations.

The Philharmonic employs professional musicians in a per service contract. With subscription performances from September through May, the Philharmonic presents a series of eight Classics concerts and six pairs of Pops concerts each season. Regional performances and many educational outreach concerts, including the Discovery Family Series and Youth Concerts to area school children, are presented by the OKC Philharmonic. Holiday performances of “The Christmas Show!”, the July 3rd concert in downtown Oklahoma City, the July 4th concert in Yukon, OK, and the annual Labor Day concert presented at the Oklahoma City Community College have become family traditions for thousands in Central Oklahoma.

Together with the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, the Philharmonic presents 18 different education programs that bring enrichment to music lovers of all ages.
