2021 Live life music fest
August 28th, 2021 | 6 PM to 9 PM | Oklahoma City University Quad
Live Life Music partnered with Oklahoma City University (OCU) to hold a community arts festival celebrating and uplifting the artists of our surrounding communities. The event took place on the beautiful Quad on campus and featured a diverse lineup of performers on one stage, varying in performance experience, gender and sexual identity, and ethnicity. Food trucks, catering, cotton candy, snow cones, and popcorn were on-site and a hit! Various art disciplines including visual creative media, dance performance, vocal arts, instrumentals, and group performances were highlighted.
Live Life Music’s board, volunteers from the broader Oklahoma community, and Oklahoma City University banded together to present opportunities for an unforgettable festival! Nearly 400 were in attendance.
This summer, we raised $10,532.60 for Southeast High School's orchestra program, directed by Maya Johnson. Thank you for supporting Live Life Music Fest this year. We couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful community we are part of, and we’re so thankful to be giving back!
Virtual Holiday Auction
Tues, Dec 1 through Sat, Dec 12th
What is it?
Live Life Music held a virtual holiday auction in December 2020 to fundraise for the mission of catalyzing awareness of social inequities in the arts throughout Oklahoma and the United States. Local Oklahoma businesses partnered with Live Life Music to make the event possible by donating items, gift cards, and certificates for the cause.
Gift baskets of values varying from $10-$225 were bid on, sold, and celebrated! Raffles, other drawings, and interactive games provided for an immersive experience through the COVID-19 safe platform of the Internet. The auction raised $952.43, and every cent will be poured back into arts communities this year.

FalL BenefiT Concert
What Is It?
We organized a benefit concert that raised $2,384 toward an underfunded, low-income school orchestra program in Oklahoma.
The members of Live Life Music realize we have been provided with financial and economic advantages and opportunities that aren't available everywhere in Oklahoma. That's why we want to use our advantages to help lift up people from under-represented areas, particularly regarding their fine arts education.
Fine arts education (such as orchestra, band, or choir, etc.) is often neglected and under-funded by poorer school districts because the subject is less prioritized than technical subjects like reading and math, meaning that these kids are missing out on the full experience of a vital and essential aspect of their education. For example, multiple orchestra students in poorer schools often have to share instruments with their classmates because they can't afford to buy their own. This means that they won't be able to take their instruments home and practice, a key part of the full music/fine-arts experience.
Through this benefit concert, we aimed to help those kids and provide them with the means necessary to have the full orchestra experience. Even if we're just local students, we believe that we do have the ability to make that difference in our society.
