Jimmy Webb to appear at NOC Renfro Lectureship - October 8, 2020

Renfro Lectureship Event – An Evening with Jimmy Webb - October 8, 2020

The Northern Oklahoma College Spring Lectureship, featuring Grammy Award winning songwriter Jimmy Webb has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 8.
The event is sponsored by the Carl and Carolyn Renfro Endowed Lectureship Program and Northern Oklahoma College. Webb will appear in the Kinzer Performing Arts Center.

Webb was scheduled to appear April 8 but the event was postponed due to Covid-19.

Tickets already purchased for the event will be honored at the Oct. 8 rescheduled program. Guests that are not able to attend the rescheduled program can either donate their purchased tickets to the NOC Foundation – Renfro Lectureship Program as a tax deduction or request a full refund by Monday, June 1. Please contact the Development office at kayla.wooderson@noc.edu or 580.628.6214 for additional details.

Webb, known as America’s Songwriter and native to Oklahoma, has written songs that transcend generations and genres including Wichita Lineman, MacArthur Park, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, and Didn’t We.

A Motown-trained composer, Webb writes all of his own lyrics and music and is the only hit maker to have scored songs on the Pop, Country, R&B, Rap, Disco and New Age charts.

During this “Evening with Jimmy Webb,” guests will hear this multi-Grammy Award winner’s songs and experience his insightful and often humorous stories about his work with Glen Campbell, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt (Still Within the Sound of My Voice), Art Garfunkel (All I Know), The Fifth Dimension (Up, Up and Away), The Highwaymen (The Highwayman), Kanye West (Famous, features Webb’s Do What You Gotta Do), and more.

Webb is the author of the memoir, The Cake and the Rain, and the “bible” of songwriting, Tunesmith: The Art of Songwriting. In 2019 Webb released a piano-only CD, “SlipCover”, featuring some of his favorite songs from his contemporaries; Billy Joel, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones and more.

A reserved table with seating for eight may be purchased for $400, which includes dinner in the Renfro Center. Individual tickets may be purchased for seating in the upper section of the Kinzer Performing Arts Center at a cost of $20 each.  Please call 580.628.6214 for ticket availability.

Northern Oklahoma College presents GALA XXV - POSTPONED

NOC Gala XXV Postponed

Out of respect for the health and safety of our community, and following CDC guidelines of halting gatherings of 10 or more, Northern Oklahoma College has made the difficult decision to postpone this year's Annual Gala previously scheduled on April 26, 2020, and is considering options for rescheduling. 

NOC President Cheryl Evans commented, “We have been blessed with such amazing talent over the past twenty-five years and look forward to the day when music can be shared in large public gatherings again.”

Ticket sales set to begin on March 31 have been suspended. We will make announcements as soon as information becomes available. 

Conductor Gerald Steichen stated “Of course, I am disappointed to not be making music with you on April 26th, but hopefully we will come to understand this virus more clearly - identify more precautions - and be able to move forward with our lives safely, and in good time, enrich the lives of North Central Oklahoma with our art and passion.”
