Exuberant Viennese waltzes, youthful talent, creative crossover and innovation set the tone for the 30th anniversary celebration of the OK Mozart International Festival, now known as OKM.

Pianist Jon Kimura Parker, an internationally celebrated Canadian ambassador of music, was guest artist for the June 8 Opening Festival Concert. Various components of Oklahoma’s 145th Army Band performing in expanded weekday showcase concert offerings brought added dimensions of world-class diversity to the Bartlesville Community Center highlights.
