Tulsa’s Entertainment Season Off to an Exciting Start
If I had an opportunity to recap what I did over school break, as many students are asked to do this time of year, I would gladly share my summer. My husband and I spent several weeks in Italy, centering our trip on the nine-day Umbrian Jazz Festival.
