Hyechka Club of Tulsa, Oklahoma’s oldest music club, will hold its annual Spring Luncheon on Wednesday, April 5, at Tulsa Historical Society’s Travis Mansion, 2445 S. Peoria. Check in begins at 10:00, with the program beginning at 10:30. Lunch by Ludger’s immediately following the program.
The musical program will include the outstanding Hyechka Chorus, violinist Sarah Thomas and internationally acclaimed dramatic mezzo-soprano Barbara McAlister.
Formed in 1904, Hyechka has spent more than 110 years in making musical gifts to the city of Tulsa through its performing members, as presenters and as fundraisers for musical “bricks and mortar” projects. It played a significant role in raising the funds for Convention Hall, now the Brady Theatre, the venue for all major musical events in Tulsa from 1914 until our current Performing Arts Center was built in 1977. In fact, Hyechka was the presenter of the first performance at the Brady, a recital by international contralto Louise Homer. Not coincidentally, the Homer program was reprised by Barbara McAlister during Hyechka’s Centennial celebration in 2004.
As always, Hyechka performances are free and open to the public. However, the luncheon, by reservation only by April 3, is $20. Reservations, with preferred seating (tell us with whom you wish to be seated) may be made by telephone (918-294-9887), mail (6108 S. Memorial Drive, 74133) or email (Carleton@cjamesattorney.com).
