McKnight Center Chamber Music Festival Kicks Off Across Oklahoma

The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater is still more than a year away from holding its grand opening concert. But as construction continues on the new state-of-the-art music performance venue, the first series of performances is already underway in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Stillwater.

The inaugural McKnight Center Chamber Music Festival, which continues through April 14th, is collaborating with world-renowned chamber musicians to help educate, inspire and entertain music lovers of all ages.

One of the festival highlights is a free community chamber music concert entitled "Just Great Music," a free event scheduled Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Seretean Center on the OSU Stillwater campus.

Listen to the interview at the top of this post to learn more about the festival and get updated on the construction of the McKnight Center.
