Statement on Unity
As we remember what we lost at the hands of racial injustice during the Tulsa Race Massacre, we also grieve for the innumerable victims of systemic racism in our country. As an orchestra, we are first individuals, who listen and learn from each other, and work together for the greater good of becoming one unified voice. We aspire to take this same approach from the stage throughout our communities, and into our neighborhoods and homes so the sound that comes from Northeast Oklahoma is not one of division, but instead, a harmonious healing sound of love and unity.
We will be an orchestra that serves as a source of enrichment for ALL.
We are listening. We are committed to change. We are Tulsa.
