OBU’s Bison Glee Club, an all-male choral group, will sing at First Baptist Church, Poteau, Okla., on Sunday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m. The community is invited to attend.
The Bison Glee Club is an auditioned group of the finest male musicians on the campus of Oklahoma Baptist University. 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 is under the direction of Dr. Brent Ballweg, director of choral activities.
Ballweg is the Burton H. Patterson Professor of Music in the Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts. Additionally, he teaches courses in conducting, choral procedures and choral literature. Prior to coming to OBU, he held college and university conducting positions in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Arizona, and Missouri, and he has served as the artistic director and conductor of the Plano (Texas) Civic Chorus, assistant director of the Kansas City Symphony Chorus and founder and director of the Northeast Arkansas Chorale.
