The Kirkpatrick Family Fund joins the list of sponsors for the Davis-Waldorf Performing Arts Series with a donation towards the recent performance by the Chicago Tap Theatre.


In addition to its support for the arts and humanities, the Kirkpatrick Family Fund supports a wide variety of social causes including youth and families, community development, education, the environment, public health and social services.


Dr. Ken Bohannon, associate professor of music and coordinator of the DWPAS, is elated to have the Kirkpatrick Family Fund join the growing list of sponsors for the series.


“This support from the Kirkpatrick Family Fund is a blessing to the community of Chickasha and to the university,” Bohannon said.

The Chicago Tap Theatre show, a holiday special titled “Tidings of Tap,” was funded also by the USAO Foundation, the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.


Local sponsors included the First National Bank and Trust Company, Arvest Bank, Trammel Construction, KOOL Radio 105.5, the Mosley Agency and the Mollett-Hunter Agency.


Other local business like the Chickasha Best Western, the Chickasha Leader, the Express-Star, Mike Day Insurance, Dunn’s Food, Eduardo’s, Chickasha Bank and Trust, and Midfirst Bank were joined by private donors Joseph and Debbie Evans and John and Patti Rogstad in sponsoring the show.


“Thanks to the support of our sponsors, performances like those delivered by Chicago Tap Theatre continue to bring top-notch cultural entertainment to the campus and the community beyond,” Bohannon said.


The next DWPAS event features the Texas Boys Choir in concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. on March 1 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium. The performance will include members of the Lincoln Elementary choir.
