Enid Symphony Orchestra

Egyptian Lobby

When George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon opened King Tutankhamun’s Tomb in 1922 the world became fascinated with all things Egyptian.

The Egyptian Lobby which serves as the fourth floor entry lobby to the Enid Symphony Center is an excellent example of this fascination as evidenced by its restored décor. The Egyptian motif is equally connected to the traditions of the Freemasons.Elements such as the hand-painted globes of the original lobby chandeliers represent legends synonymous with Masonic ideals. For many larger events the Egyptian Lobby is appropriate as a food and beverage service area.
