OU Bands

The University of Oklahoma Bands offer a variety performing experiences for students regardless of whether you are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate music degree or choose to participate as a non-music major in the cultural life of the University.  Musical collaboration and artistic growth are life-changing opportunities to take full advantage of during your University experience.

The Wind Symphony, Symphony Band, Concert Band and Jazz Ensembles perform in the acoustically rich Paul F. Sharp Concert Hall in Catlett Music Center, while the entire Pride of Oklahoma performs in the exciting venues of the Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium (85,000 fans) for home football games, selected conference and non-conference away games as well as memorable post-season bowl games.

We hope you will explore the many opportunities provided by the University of Oklahoma Bands.

Conducting and Teaching Workshop

Wednesday – Friday, June 13-15, 2018

The Conducting and Teaching Workshop will provide an enriching opportunity to blend the artistic and technical growth of the conductor with rehearsal technique, administrative, and teaching skills.  Each conducting participant will conduct daily with ample time on the podium.  The selected repertoire list encompasses recognized masterworks of the band literature as well as newer works that are possible to perform with a variety of ensemble levels.  In addition to conducting a live ensemble, participants will receive feedback and coaching on their conducting, attend master-classes, clinic sessions, and panel discussions.
