Symphony Show House dates delayed

The dates for the Symphony Show House have been changed from May 11-19 to June 8-16 because heavy rains led to flooding in parts of the building, according to the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, which organizes the annual fundraiser for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and music education.

The Show House will go on at the former Sunbeam Family Services property at 620 NW 21, renovated into apartments by Marva Ellard's MidTown Builders.

"Repairs are underway and we are still committed to provide a unique and interesting tour of the historic Sunbeam Home and the beautiful rooms from our talented designers — just a bit later. It will be worth the wait," spokesman Joan Bryant said.
