The Symphony Show House, “A View to a Thrill,” continues this weekend in the 7,000-square-foot, 18th-floor penthouse of Founders Tower, 5900 Mosteller Drive.

The Show House, a fundraiser by the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with lunch served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, with lunch from noon to 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $15. The fundraiser raises money for community music education. For more details, go to www.symphonyshowhouse.com/.

“This fundraising project is an amazing undertaking that involves a team of volunteers, interior and exterior designers, vendors, Realtors and retailers that works together for over seven months to complete,” organizers said on the web page. “The Show House Committee is the leadership group that organizes the event. Each year, newcomers join and veterans take on new aspects of the project. There's a place for every talent and everyone finds the effort challenging but immensely rewarding.”

With 19 designers or design teams represented, 32 distinct spaces, including the laundry room, foyer and 10 balconies, were remade for this year’s Show House, said Rhonda White, co-chairwoman.

“Top talents of interior and exterior design bring you beautiful spaces filled with hundreds of remarkable and unique items — and almost everything is on sale. Gorgeous furniture, elegant textiles, stunning ornaments and decor of every style around every corner at the Symphony Show House. Explore the rooms, talk to designers, browse for unique items throughout the house and in the boutique, enjoy lunch or a snack in the bistro — it’s all for a great cause,” the website says.
