Duncan Oklahoma Music
An Australian man who was in the US on a baseball scholarship has brought grief to the small Oklahoma town where he was shot. Christopher Lane, 22, was fatally shot in the back while jogging on a street in Duncan, Oklahoma, in the middle of the afternoon on Friday. He was on his way back from a summer trip to Australia and was visiting his family in Goose Bay, Oklahoma, a small town about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City, when he was killed. Gosling had met Lane's mother, father and brother and courted them, but he hadn't met them yet.
He was an avid OSU Cowboys fan and enjoyed attending games with his family and playing with the grandchildren. He liked to go to the lake, watch his son Ronnie play music and run around with daughter Paula and friends.
He also founded and directed the New Horizons Steel Band Ensemble and was the musical director of the music department of the OSU College of Arts and Sciences. He also played with the Oklahoma City Symphony Orchestra and the University of Oklahoma Orchestra and was a member of the board of trustees of the American Academy of Music in New York City. During his studies he had a strong interest in music, art, music education and music history.
He has also served on the boards of directors of the Oklahoma City Symphony Orchestra and the University of Oklahoma Orchestra for several years. He was also a member of the board of trustees of the American Academy of Music in New York City and Oklahoma State University.
In 1961, Merle and Priscilla were selected by the National Association for Service to the Community as Music Merchant of the Year. In 1996, 2002 and 2003, the Cordell HS Band was awarded a prize by the American Academy of Music and the Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra.
Most of the locations listed in the NRHP, including Halliburton, ExxonMobil and Chevron, are located in Duncan, including the University of Oklahoma, Duncan High School, Cordell HS, the Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra and the Duncan Police Department. The company's offices were later moved to Dallas and Houston, but they have headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.
In Duncan, a vibrant arts community that offers live theater, live music and concerts, there is always something to do, not to mention festivals and year-round events. The three senior centers offer a variety of services: The Simmons Center offers a variety of activities and courses for seniors, the Douglass Center offers an arts and crafts program once a week for adults over 65, and the Douglas Center offers a wide range of educational programs for all ages and abilities. All patrons and volunteers are involved in the activities at Duncan Community Center and Duncan Senior Center.
This is unique in any community of this size in the country and the travelling exhibitions of the renowned museum will always tempt you to return.
The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, established in 1998 and expanded in 2003, offers a wide range of exhibits about the history and culture of Duncan and his people. Duncan's rich heritage includes the Sill, and it's impossible to miss the historic buildings of the Duncan Museum of Art and History, as well as the old town hall. Today, Duncan's story is as easy to find in the city's parks and trails as in any other Oklahoma city. The Chishedolms Trail stretches nearly 40 feet across our front lawn and connects to the Oklahoma State Capitol in Tulsa.
The 750-seat theatre has staged many plays and concerts, and offers meeting rooms for groups of up to 800 people, as well as events such as the annual Duncan Music Festival and the Duncan Symphony Orchestra.
Any interest in our free time is welcomed by the various organizations that make Duncan such a special community. Please check out our top activities in Duncan and check our list one by one. We would appreciate it if you would check this list individually, and please have a look at it!
I started my search by googling for a renowned talent agency specialising in promoting mobile DJs in the city. I was looking for an agency with a professional looking website that is among the most respected and sought after to represent those who work today.
