Orientation / New OKC location / Registration / Updated Handbook/ Norman Expo / First Rehearsal

Please take the time to read through the information below as it will help you in knowing what's going on within the COHC for the next 2 weeks.  The COHC Choral Directors are extremely excited for the year to begin and are ready to work with you on fun and challenging new choral music.  

A special thank you to those who helped this past week in cleaning out our old storage unit and setting up our new music library and work space at Baptist Temple. It could not have been possible without the Nedrow, Chippeaux, Roberts, Cavett, and Matlick families.  

See you at an Orientation this week!

ORIENTATION
COHC is hosting Orientation for new and former choir members as well as those interested in joining the choirs.  Join us this week at the location you will be attending this next year.  This is a great time to reconnect, learn of new COHC events, meet your teacher for the upcoming year, and more!

NEW OKC LOCATION
The OKC Choirs will be meeting at BAPTIST TEMPLE this upcoming year.  This is a major change for our choirs which we believe will give us the educational space needed and room to grow in the future.  If you have been in the COHC / OKC Choirs in the past, be sure that you are going to our new location of Baptist Temple.  It is located at 2433 NW 30th Street (corner of 30th & Villa).

REGISTRATION
Our numbers are neck and neck with this date in 2014.  If you have not taken the time to register, you can do so on-line or you can registar at Orientation this week.  Having accurate numbers helps us order the correct number of music and supplies needed for the upcoming semester, so please register sooner rather than later.  You can register now by clicking: REGISTRATION

STUDENT HANDBOOK
The updated Student Handbook is now available on our website and as a PDF file.  Please take the time to read through this document before the first rehearsal.  HANDBOOK
