Bison Glee Club


Founded in 1938 by Warren M. Angell, former dean of the College of Fine Arts, the Bison Glee Club is an auditioned group of 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. Its annual season features a variety of performances including tour concerts, regular campus concerts, Homecoming Gala, Hanging of the Green, chapel events and numerous Oklahoma-area appearances. They have been 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.  To schedule the Bison Glee Club, contact Dr. Ballweg at brent.ballweg@okbu.edu or call 405.878.2311.
