TULSA — The Oklahoma School for the Blind Jazz Band will be performing at the Woodland Hills Mall on Oct. 15.

Officials say the award-winning jazz band will be performing in front of the Macy's on the lower level of the mall starting at 6 p.m.

OSB officials say the concert, and other activities, were planned to celebrate National White Cane Safety Awareness Day. National White Cane Safety Awareness Day recognizes the celebration between travel safety, effective cane us, and independence for people who are blind.

Both OSB faculty and experts will have educational exhibits, share information and will be answering questions about blindness and vision loss beginning at 3:30 p.m.

"OSB is honored to share in the celebration and invite everyone to come to Woodland Hills to hear our award-winning Jazz Band and participate in our White Cane Day walk," OSB Superintendent Rita Echelle said. "White Cane Day is a great day to celebrate achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired, as well as educate the world about blindness and how people who are blind and visually impaired can live and work independently while giving back to their communities."

The OSB Jazz Band has earned 2-A state championships in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Woodland Hills Mall is located at 7021 South Memorial Road in Tulsa.
