Thursday, May 22, 8 p.m.

It’s been a long kiss goodbye, yet it seems to have arrived too soon. Signature Symphony says farewell to its founder and outgoing artistic director and conductor Barry Epperley, who will lead the orchestra one last time at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at the Cox Business Center, 100 Civic Center, Tulsa. The night will include dinner and live and silent auctions as well as a proper roast for Epperley by friends and colleagues. And who better to raise a glass to the symphony and Epperley than Broadway legend and Tony Awards winner Bernadette Peters, the night’s magnificently in-tune entertainment? Tickets and sponsorships to the dinner event and night’s show are available. The event is also fundraiser. For more, visit www.signaturesymphony.org.
