Division of Music to Host ‘Main Event’

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.
