Uniting the community in SONG!

If you love to sing, come join the OU Choral Union. Our goal is to unite the voices of OU and area high school students, alumni, faculty, staff with members of the local community to learn and perform great choral music. The OU Choral Union, under the direction of Richard Zielinski (Dr. Z) and Dr. David Howard will perform exciting choral literature.  Everyone is welcome to join this ensemble.
