TulsaFest is a multi-discipline, multi-level arts education experience created by Tulsa Community College and the Performing Arts Institute.  The annual summer program showcases the talents of classically trained musicians of all ages in an educational setting to encourage and develop student interest in the performing arts.

TulsaFest’s education component offers a unique opportunity for middle and high school students to work closely with local, regional and national professionals for instrumental and vocal instruction.  For two weeks, students attend daily classes, perform for guest conductors and work in small groups and ensembles.  High school band and orchestra students also participate in workshops.

Student performers present two featured concerts during the two-week festival.  Along with the educational component, TulsaFest offers arts patrons several  performances each year.  Featured entertainers include local, regional, and TulsaFest students.  Professional guests on the TulsaFest stage have included Broadway stars, internationally acclaimed pianists, renowned composers, singers, dancers and big bands.

TulsaFest is designed and coordinated through the Tulsa Community College Performing Arts Institute, developed to enhance communication and coordination of the arts throughout the community and educational system.  Through TulsaFest, people and performers of all ages have the opportunity to make the performing arts an important part of their lives.
