Bass School of Music  
OCU's Partnerships

 

El Sistema Oklahoma is a free music program and ministry of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in partnership with the Wanda L. Bass School of Music at Oklahoma City University and the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools. Inspired by El Sistema in Venezuela, the mission of the Oklahoma-based initiative is to serve the community by engaging children within an ensemble-based music program so they can share the joy of music making and grow as responsible citizens.
The Oklahoma Youth Orchestras program seeks to broaden the cultural and artistic horizons of middle school and high school orchestral students through advanced training and performance opportunities under the direction of professional musicians, conductors and teachers. The OYO works to support, enhance and extend school orchestra and band programs. Membership is based on ability without regard to race, religion, gender, disability or ability to pay.
The Canterbury Choral Society's mission is to transform lives, educate the future and inspire communities through great choral music. Canterbury's vision is to continually offer artistic and educational experiences of the highest quality each year to the broadest and most diverse audience possible in the Central Oklahoma region.
