Symphony Show House fundraiser is on, and online, in Oklahoma City

The Symphony Show House fundraiser is on at 2737 Guilford Lane, with social distancing observed because of the coronavirus pandemic — and with a first-ever option: an HGTV-style, virtual video tour.

The designer-led video tour, produced by Reckless Abandonment Pictures, comes with the Premium Experience Ticket, which also includes one free show house ticket. Ticket buyers have the option of going to the house or staying at home to gain designer insights at a safe social distance, without missing out.

The annual tour, delayed more than a month because of the coronavirus, is the Oklahoma City Orchestra League's biggest fundraiser for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and its music education programs.

"This HGTV-style tour is fun and quirky, featuring several designers who will welcome you into their rooms and share their unique vision. It’s fun to see the collaborative spirit the designers share that culminates in one fantastic Hollywood Hills-style home,” said Susan Webb, director of marketing.

All tour tickets, designer sales, pop-up boutique sales and even the sale of the whole house will benefit the music education and community programs for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. The home is listed with Wyatt Poindexter Group, of KW Luxury Homes International, for $3.25 million.

Tickets are available at www.okcphil.org/showhouse. Webb said the link will be delivered to inboxes by Sunday evening.

The show house will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily Saturday through June 28, with the first hour reserved for those at higher risk for COVID-19. The Symphony Show House will adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local guidance for health and safety.

"We will kindly ask you to squirt some hand sanitizer on your hands when you walk in and ask you to wear your mask. Should you not have one, one will be provided for you," Webb said.

The completely renovated property includes a brand-new custom pool and half-basketball court. Remodeled by A-List Construction, the house features nearly 8,000 square feet with five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling commercial windows, marble, steel and rustic wood beams.

“As the world shifts around us, let us not forget the strides and growth our performing arts have made in recent years in OKC. This is only possible with your participation, enthusiasm and patronage. This is one way to support our mission to provide inspiration and joy through orchestral music to our community,” Webb said.
