Nowata Country Jubilee


Classic Country Band on stage Saturday


Nowata Country Jubilee will offer another exciting musical show on Saturday.


The fabulous house band, The Classic Country Band, will play, and the featured guest will present a repertoire of popular country and rock music.


After many postponements, which were not his fault, the Jubilee’s guest for the night is the remarkable John Edens. John is a talented singer with a great stage presence from Fredonia, Kan.


The Nowata Country Jubilee presents talented, regional musicians in a comfortable, family-oriented setting. Located at the Jack R. Ellis Memorial Theater in downtown Nowata, at 116 N. Maple, this non-profit organization funds two scholarships through the entertainment of music-loving audiences. Performances are on the first and third Saturdays, monthly.


The dance floor is always ready and there is comfortable theater seating, when you want to sit it out. Adult admission is $10. Children, under 12, are admitted free, when supervised. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.


The Jubilee is handicapped accessible, parking is free and the Jubilee is smoke-free and alcohol-free facility.


There is food available, if you want to dine or snack. Homemade desserts are the kitchen specialty. Door prizes are drawn at the intermission, along with the 50/50 pot drawing.

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church


Free concert set for Sunday


A special musical treat is being offered as a gift to the community at 4 p.m. Sunday at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, located at 9th and Dewey Streets in Bartlesville.


There is no admission charge for this concert. An offering will be received for the benefit of the many helping organizations in the community which are supported by the Outreach Ministry of St. Luke’s Church.


The 90-minute program, titled “Musical Mirth and Musings,” features Stephen Goforth playing a variety of trumpets and other instruments including several that have been specially designed and crafted as one-of-a-kind instruments for Dr. Goforth. He will be accompanied by organist Dolores McCreary.


This duo first performed together for an OKMozart Showcase event in 2011. They have presented their unique blend of what they call entertaining, enlightening, educational and exciting music several times in Bartlesville and Tulsa. Each program has been received with much enthusiasm by audiences.


Stephen Goforth is well known to Bartlesville music lovers as principal trumpet for Bartlesville Symphony Orchestra and also the Signature Symphony, Tulsa. These are only two of the many groups with which he performs and for which he has received notable recognition.


Dolores McCreary is organist-choir director for St. Luke’s Church. She is also recognized in the community for her many years of involvement with musical and theatrical activities.


“Musical Mirth and Musings” is a program that will delight all ages. Families are encouraged to bring children!
