Welcome to the OkMEA Children’s Chorus page!

OkMEA will be using Opus Event for online auditions and adjudication for the 2020-2021 school year.

The in-person OkMEA Children’s All-State festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

The Children’s Chorus will have a virtual All-State experience in January
for those students who audition and make the ensemble.
