Celebrating 70 years: The Oklahoma City Orchestra League members were hosts to the annual Maestro's Ball at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. It was an exceptional evening of dinner and dancing to the music of the OKC Jazz Orchestra. The OCOL has been in existence for 70 years.

Maestro's Circle: Jose Freede was inducted into the group's “Maestro's Circle.” She was chosen for her volunteer and financial contributions to the Orchestra League, the OKC Philharmonic and to the community. She was presented the Maestro's Ball Medallion and a bouquet of flowers by the honorary chairman, Lee Allan Smith. Jose has been president of the OCOL (1973-74) and Show House Chairman. She has served on various boards throughout the years. Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate gave a Champagne toast to Jose.

SINGING HEART

Celebration: A dedication ceremony was held for the installation of "Singing Heart," a sculpture by Allan Houser, at Oklahoma State University. The sculpture, gifted by Jeanene Jenkins Hulsey and Ron Hulsey, is located in the Mother's Garden on the west side of the Atherton Hotel. The ceremony was hosted by OSU President Burns Hargis and his wife, Ann Hargis.

The gift/givers: "Singing Heart" is an extension of the OSU Museum of Art's permanent collection. Houser (1914-1994) was an Apache sculptor, painter and book illustrator born in Oklahoma. He is considered one of the most renowned American Indian modernist sculptors of the 20th century. The Hulseys live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and have been committed patrons of the museum since its inception. Jeanene Jenkins Hulsey is a member of the OSU Museum of Art Advisory Board and OSU Art Advisory Council.
