University Chorale

Since its founding in 1963, the University Chorale at OBU has been its premiere mixed ensemble. Comprised of 35 of OBU’s finest singers selected by audition, Chorale’s purpose remains the same as it was in its earliest days: “to present advanced choral literature to the OBU campus and community.” University Chorale maintains an active performing schedule both on campus and throughout Oklahoma and the southwest United States.. The Chorale has previously appeared at the Southwestern Division Conference of the American Choral Directors Association, The Church Music Workshop, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, the Oklahoma State Youth Choir Festival and the Oklahoma Music Educators Association In-service Workshop. The University Chorale is under the direction of Dr. Brent Ballweg.  To schedule the University Chorale, contact Dr. Ballweg at brent.ballweg@okbu.edu or call 405.585.4316.
