Oklahoma Baptist Children’s Chorus

Nothing goes together better than children and music!

The Oklahoma Baptist Children’s choir is eager to be back in person for a new season.  Beginning their 10th season for 2022-2023, the OBCC is open to all 4-7 graders. It is exciting to hear a new generation of musicians sing and develop a voice of praise and worship. The OBCC rehearses at the Baptist Building in Oklahoma City, and they sing across the state of Oklahoma, bringing a fresh and beautiful voice as they worship in our churches and other venues.

Join us!

This group is an auditioned group. Auditions are open until August 18, 2022.

Auditions are held at Cross Timbers Camp, W.A.C.K. or by appointment.
