Patty Neuwirth, the Executive Director of the Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra, encourages everyone to experience a performance like this at least once.

She says, "It’s something very few people have seen.  A live orchestra, full orchestra that is just the most wonderful experience!  The music just takes you away and then when you put that with the 60-member choir, oh my goodness, you need to come and see and once you come I think you'll want to come back."

The concert is Saturday night is at the McMahon Memorial Auditorium starting at 8. Tickets cost between 10 and 50 dollars.
