Bisonette Glee Club

The Bisonettes, OBU’s Women’s Glee Club, was founded in 1954 by Warren M. Angell, former dean of the College of Fine Arts. Membership in the group is by audition; this year’s membership includes students from Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Arizona, Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois. While music majors comprise a majority of the singers, the group is represented by a wide group of non-music majors, including nursing, graphic design, biblical languages, psychology, biology, and English.

The group performs at a wide range of campus events and off-campus concerts, including an annual tour of churches and schools. The repertoire of the group represents a wide range of compositional styles in both sacred and secular musical formats as well as showcasing choral standards, traditional numbers, and contemporary compositions.

Additional information about The Bisonettes, including audition information, concert bookings, and repertoire, can be obtained by contacting the director Jim Vernon by e-mail at james.vernon@okbu.edu or by calling 405-878-2317.
