Choral Groups to Lead Worship in Oklahoma Churches

Three OBU choral groups will lead worship during the next few weeks in churches across Oklahoma.

David’s Creed, a contemporary praise ensemble, will lead worship at Countryside Baptist Church in Newalla, Okla., on Sunday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m.

The University Chorale, an auditioned mixed choir, will travel first to First Baptist Church, Oklahoma City, for the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday, Oct. 16, and next to Wilmont Place Baptist Church, Oklahoma City, for the 6 p.m. service the same day.

The Bison Glee Club, an all-male group, will lead worship at First Baptist Church, Durant, Sunday, Oct. 30, at 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.

David’s Creed is an auditioned praise ensemble started by the OBU Division of Music in the spring of 2007. The group is directed by Dr. Casey Gerber, assistant professor of music education and coordinator of vocal music education. The ensemble’s primary purpose is to connect OBU with the churches in Oklahoma and the surrounding region by serving those churches in worship through music, testimony and God’s Word.

University Chorale is comprised of 30 of OBU’s finest singers. The group’s purpose is “to present advanced choral literature to the OBU campus and community.” In the past seven years the Chorale has appeared at the Southwestern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association, The Church Music Workshop and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The University Chorale is under the direction of Dr. Brent Ballweg, director of choral activities.

The Bison Glee Club is an auditioned group of the finest male musicians on the OBU campus. The group has long been considered one of the premiere men’s choruses in the Southwest and has toured extensively throughout the United Stated as well as in Canada, Europe and the Far East. They were recently featured as an honor choir for the Oklahoma Music Educators Convention and the Southern Baptist Church Music Conference. The Bison Glee Club also is under the direction of Dr. Brent Ballweg.
