Admission to regular season concerts is $5 for an individual, $10 for a family (up to six) and $2 for students with a valid ID unless otherwise noted. All tickets are general admission and available only on the day of the concert.

OKCity Card Holders can enjoy 50% off concert admission on the concert day when they present their card at the box office. For more information on the Allied Arts City Card, please visit www.okcitycard.com – be sure to tell them the Member Agency Oklahoma Youth Orchestras sent you!

Family’s First Concerts – We know it can be stressful to bring young children to a concert setting, and encourage you to try Oklahoma Youth Orchestras as your Family’s First Concert. Family Passes available for most concerts – email your interest to  Melody Garza at mgarza@oyomusic.org. 

Recordings are available for purchase for each regular season concert unless otherwise noted. 

Please note that some information may change as the season progresses. Check back here to see the most up-to-date information.
