Tickets are $2 at the door for adults and free for 18 and younger.
The Circle the State with Song Choir Festivals are held in several regions around Oklahoma.
“It is a great opportunity for our young singers to sing with children from different school districts," said West music teacher Sarah Long . "It is a wonderful experience for our Ponca City students, and it is a delight to hear this large group of young singers raise their voices in song.”
The goals of the Circle the State with Song are to provide an opportunity for
· Exceptional music students to work with guest choral clinicians on challenging music and for an exciting choral experience with other students
· Music teachers to observe and learn as the clinician works with the students and to share vocal pedagogy, ideas with other teachers
· Students to perform children’s choral repertoire of excellent quality
· Both students and teachers to participate in the 2015 All-OMEA children’s Choir
