Song for Norman

Norman becomes the first city in the state to commission its own anthem.


News

Mia Cantu
The city of Norman has made history, of a sort, recently becoming the first municipality in Oklahoma — and possibly the U.S. — to have commissioned its own anthem. The idea to give the community its own theme song originated with two Norman residents: Chuck Thompson, president of Republic Bank & Trust; and Richard Zielinski, artistic and music director of the newly formed Norman Philharmonic.
