Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center partners with the Broken Arrow Arts & Humanities Council to announce the return of UPCLOSE, an intimate concert series that encourages audience interaction and conversation with some of the most entertaining and talented artists in the region.
UPCLOSE kicks off Feb. 21 with Tulsa Symphony Orchestra’s Bravo Brass Quintet. The series continues on April 24 with the Dueling Pianos Show starring Tom Basler. The series concludes on May 22 with the return of Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, this time with their String Quintet players. Each matinee show begins at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays and is held at the BAPAC in downtown Broken Arrow.
“This unique series gives patrons the opportunity to share the stage with some truly exceptional talent,” BAPAC Executive Director Mark Frie said. “There is no better way to experience what we do here at the PAC than to see it up-close.”
