The Kingston Trio, the American folk and pop music group that launched the folk revival of the late 1950s to the early 1960s, will present “Holiday Cheers” at the historic Will Rogers High School Auditorium, 3909 E. 5th Place (Will Rogers Boulevard) in Tulsa on Saturday, December 17, 2016, at 2:00 p.m., sponsored by the Will Rogers High School Community Foundation. Back by popular demand, The Kingston Trio will perform their exquisite arrangements of holiday music like you have never heard before, plus several of their familiar classic hits, in the beautiful Will Rogers High School auditorium, all dressed up for the holiday season. The Kingston Trio’s appearance at the school in February 2016 is believed to be one of the first—if not the first—musical concerts at that venue by a group of this stature that is open to the public. All proceeds from the concert will go to the Will Rogers High School Community Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, which was formed in 2010. To date the foundation has provided approximately $270,000 towards Academics, Athletics, Arts and Administration needs, benefiting the students. The current trio, comprised of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty, with Paul Gabrielson on acoustic bass, is as accomplished as any prior composition of the group, according to Dick Risk, (WRHS ‘59) volunteer event coordinator. “Bill first joined the trio almost 43 years ago, although he left for a while and then rejoined them. George came into the group and is its longest-tenured member, working in his 40th year, and Rick is in his 11th year. Bob Shane, the only surviving original member, still wields a guiding hand to ensure the trio stays true to its traditions, and even performs with them on occasions.” The Kingston Trio was by far the most popular singing group in the folk revival era. They dominated the Billboard charts, unmatched by anyone, once having four albums in the Billboard Top 10 at the same time. Tickets will go on sale September 15. All seats are reserved, with prices ranging from $25 plus a service charge. Tickets are on sale online at, by phone at (866) 9PROTIX, or through ProTix ticket outlets in Tulsa at Starship Records & Tapes and the Brady Theater Box Office.
