Welcome to the online home of the Oklahoma Small Schools Band Directors Association (OSSBDA), sponsor of the annual Oklahoma Small School All-State Band.
Click "Event Registration" (above) to register your students for the 2019-20 audition process. In order to register, directors will need the "Event Number" and "Password" which are included in the OSSBDA Fall Mail-out.
All audition registration will be done on-line. Any director that can't register on-line will need to contact Keith Huitt, OSSBDA Secretary/Treasurer, as soon as possible.
Only OSSAA class 2A, 3A, and 4A schools are eligible to register or participate. Students in grades 10-12 are eligible to audition.
The registration deadline is September 21, 2019.
NOTE: AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2019 AT TECUMSEH MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Documents including the fall letter, audition requirements and scales are available for download. The new Jazz Band audition requirements are also available. Open then save, or simply right-click the appropriate link and select "Save Target As..." to download them to your computer (Adobe Reader required).
