A local school will host its inaugural music festival Saturday at the amphitheater on the grounds of First Christian Church of Oklahoma City, 3700 N Walker.

The Hawkstock 2014 Music Festival, hosted by Harding Fine Arts Academy, is set for 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Principal Sherry Rowan said the event is family friendly and will feature activities for children and food trucks in addition to music of various genres.

Groups set to perform include the Red Dirt Rangers, Broken Okies, OK Chorale and Annie Oakley.

The amphitheater, once the site of outdoor worship services and twilight concerts, had fallen into disrepair in recent years. Students, parents and administrators from Harding Fine Arts Academy agreed to renovate the amphitheater in exchange for using it for the musical.

Rowan said the structure was rehabilitated with funding from the church and donations from local businesses.

The festival is a fundraiser to help pay for renovations needed at the school, 3333 N Shartel Ave. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted.
