The Everly Set Postponed
With the ongoing health issues both here and abroad, our first responsibility in the performing arts is for the safety and well-being of our audiences, our performers and all the wonderful staff that make our Community Concert season possible. Based on these concerns, as well as advisories at both the national and state level, we will be postponing our final performance, “The Everly Set”, scheduled for April 27th. We feel this is in the best interests of our touring artists as well as our audiences and ask for your understanding and patience as we continue to monitor the situation.
As with other community groups, we see this as a postponement and not a cancellation at this time. The course of this illness and conditions here in Bartlesville (and Oklahoma) will dictate when we may be able to re-schedule. We will be working with our artist representative (Allied Concert Services) and the staff at the Community Center to determine that outcome. As soon as we have confirmation of a date we will provide you an update.
2019-2020 Concert Season
All performances will be at the Bartlesville Community Center
The Everly Set
Monday April 27, 2020 – 7:30 pm
Starring Sean Altman (founder, Rockapella) and Jack Skuller (Songwriters Hall of Fame Holly Prize) will take you back to 1957 when teens Phil and Don Everly first super-charged the vocal sound of Rock’n’Roll with sparkling harmonies that influenced The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Hollies, and the Bee Gees. Sean and Jack revive the vibe of the Everly Brothers with many of their charted hits from 1957 to 1988.

Take Me Home – Jim Curry
TUESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2019 – 7:30 PM
We are delighted to have Jim Curry back to reprise his tribute to the life and music of John Denver. Jim sings in his own natural voice – a tribute to the music in a way that has to be seen and heard to understand the pure honesty of his amazing performance. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the true essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso” fill the room.
