Please read the following regarding the 2020 All-State Auditions

Due to the continuing challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic and to care for the health and safety of our teachers and students, the OkCDA Executive Board voted unanimously to audition for all-state choirs via technology.  Students will submit online and judges will adjudicate online as well.  More details to come, but we plan to make it as similar to OkMEA as possible to ease the learning curve.  This decision came over several months of planning and was not made lightly.  We hope you are all well, and we hope that knowing this plan now, you can make decisions for your school year the best for you and your students.

Please read the following regarding the 2020 Summer Conference

To Our Membership:

We are saddened to have had to make the decision as an Executive Board to cancel our 2020 Summer Conference.  There were many deciding factors, one being that every University will be closed this summer.  We will however, still be putting a list of song recommendations from our R&R Chairs that would have been in their session on the webpage.  The webpage will be updated to give you pertinent information about All-State and any corrections like we would at the conference.  You can and should still send in your download forms for the All-State tracks from our website.  These will not start being released to teachers until July 14th.  I cannot tell you the heavy heart this presents our Executive Board with, but during this startling pandemic we strive to put you all first as always and that means keeping you safe and healthy to keep loving and teaching your students the Art of Music.

If you know of any new (first year teachers or teachers new to Oklahoma) for the 2020-2021 year, please send those names to Stephania Abell.

Thank you for your understanding,
The OCDA Executive Board 2020
