1. What should I wear to the performances?
Various styles of dress are appropriate. Some patrons prefer formal to semi-formal attire, while others prefer business, casual or even jeans. The most common attire for events would be business casual.
2. What time should I arrive?
We begin almost all evening concerts at 8:00 p.m. Allow yourself at least 20-30 minutes before the performance starts to arrive at the Community Center so that you will have time to get to your seats, secure a program and get settled.
If you arrive after the concert begins, the ushers are instructed to hold admittance to the concert hall until the end of the piece being played.
The afternoon Chamber Music Concerts at the Bartlesville High School Fine Arts Center (1 mile south of the Bartlesville Community Center) begin at 2:00 pm. The morning Mini-Concerts of Contemporary Music at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church begin at 11:00 am. Both series will offer reserved seats and we hope you find this an attractive option.
3. How long is a typical performance?
A formal OKM concert lasts about 2 hours, including one intermission. However, program length varies.
Our chamber music concerts run about 1 – 1 1/2 hours (with no intermission) and the Mini-Concerts of Contemporary Music last about 45 minutes.
Call 918-336-9800 for more detailed information.

All concerts are recorded for broadcast or archives. Unfortunately, these recordings are not available for purchase at this time.

6. May I take pictures?

In consideration of both the musicians and the audience, children under five years of age are not encouraged to attend most performances.
However, there are several concerts that children are encouraged to attend including the Woolaroc Concert, which children 1 and over will need tickets for. Also, make sure to check out our Children of ALL Ages Showcase Series, which are activities geared towards both the young and young at heart.

Questions about Woolaroc
1. What should I expect at the Woolaroc Outdoor Concert?
Amici New York Orchestra takes the classics to the great outdoors in a natural amphitheatre at Woolaroc Ranch and Museum, 12 miles from Bartlesville in the beautiful Osage Hills. As darkness deepens, a grand finale of fireworks lights the western sky! If you haven’t been to a Festival event before, this is the one to attend. Bring your lawn chair, a picnic dinner, a flashlight and be sure to dress for the outdoors.
2. What should I wear?
Dress to be comfortable since you will be outside in mid-June. Wear sturdy walking shoes (to negotiate the rocky paths) and casual clothing. Sometimes it gets cool, so packing a light sweater is a good idea. You may want to bring insect repellent, though Woolaroc always sprays for mosquitoes before the concert.
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets.
3. May I pack a picnic?
Absolutely! Or, alternatively, you can purchase food and refreshments from food vendors on site.
4. May I bring beer or wine with my picnic?
Yes, alcoholic beverages are allowed.
5. Is smoking allowed?
Even though this concert will be held outdoors, we ask that you please do not smoke.
6. May I bring my pet?
7. When should I arrive?
The ranch gates open at 5:00; the concert begins at 8:00. Please allow extra time to park and reach the concert site.
8. Where do I park and what about access for people with special needs?
As you enter the ranch gates, you will be directed to a parking lot. A State-issued handicapped tag will entitle you to special parking. If you have a temporary disability or special need, tell the ticket taker at the gate and you will receive a special pass for this parking. Courtesy vans run continually from the top parking lot to the concert grounds for your convenience.
Some people choose the convenience of round-trip bus rides between the Community Center and Woolaroc. Tickets are available from the Box Office at 918-336-9800.
9. What if it rains?
If cancellation due to inclement weather occurs, the information will be broadcast on area radio stations by mid-afternoon on the day of the concert.
