Aspiring musicians interested in attending the Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts are invited and encouraged to attend Oklahoma Baptist University's Main Event, a preview day hosted by the Division of Music, Feb. 14-15, on the OBU campus.
The event is designed especially for high school juniors and seniors interested in musical studies at OBU. The event provides a special opportunity for future Bison to attend music classes and ensemble rehearsals; listen and participate in faculty/student presentations and panels; audition for music scholarships; and spend the night in campus housing with a current music major.
