Celebrating its 30th season, OK Mozart continued its mission to bring the highest quality professional musical and cultural experience to the Bartlesville area.

The festival, held in Woolaroc, has come a long way since it was originally conceived in 1983.

"Attendance is up, if I had to give you a percentage, I'd say about 30 percent this year," said Executive Director, Randy Thomas.

People from all over the world came to the town in the Osage Hills of Northeastern Oklahoma to enjoy the classical music.

"The largest newspaper in Finland was there with a photographer," Thomas said. "They were interested in the fact that even middle-America loves classical music, they assumed it was just the coasts."

The festival comes to an end on Saturday with Beethoven's 9th Symphony, four soloists who sang in the Magic Flute Opera and a chorus of over 100.

Tickets are still on sale and anyone interested can call 918-336-9900 or visit their website.
