LAWTON — The Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra has rescheduled its April 25 concert due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The final concert of the orchestra’s 2019-2020 season will now take place at 7:30 p.m. July 18 in the McMahon Memorial Auditorium, 801 NW Ferris in Lawton, according to a news release.

John Williams’ "Olympic Theme and Fanfare" will be played live. Maurice Ravel’s jazz-infused piano concerto, with echoes of Gershwin, will have the orchestra’s conductor, Maestro Jon Kalbfleisch, doing double duty, and Bela Bartok’s "Concerto for Orchestra" gives nearly every player a solo in this orchestral showcase to end the season.

Tickets for the concert are $10 to $50 depending on section and can be purchased online at www.lawtonphil.com or by calling 580-531-5043. Tickets that have already been purchased will be honored for the rescheduled date.

The Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra performs symphonic music at the professional level to educate and entertain diverse audiences in the Southwest Oklahoma region. For more information, go to www.lawtonphil.com.
