Bartlesville, OK – Price Tower Arts Center invites the community to enjoy the sounds of the Second Street Jazz Band during its Third Thursday Concert on August 18th. The concert will get underway at 5:30 p.m.
“We are thrilled to have this group performing as a part of our Third Thursday concert series,” said Amanda Herwig, development coordinator for Price Tower Arts Center. “The Second Street Jazz Band has been performing since 2007 and many of the band members will be familiar to those in the community.”
