“I am overwhelmed by the support LOOK has received from both the Tulsa community and our patrons in the last 25 years”, says Eric Gibson. “I would like to thank John and Jane Everitt for having the vision to found this institution that has grown to foster such an abundance of musical excellence for the state of Oklahoma year after year.”
