Welcome to OFMC!

What a roller coaster ride 2020 and 2021 have been with the COVID-19 Pandemic!

I hope you read our amazing 100 year plus History and more! This history tells of how a community would have not just one, but several music clubs. OFMC and its many music clubs made a difference. And the beat goes on. In June, 2016 OFMC hosted, along with other states in the South Central District, the NFMC Conference in downtown Tulsa with OFMC Co-chairs.

Celebrations are continuing. The Ponca City Federated Music Club is in the midst of its 100th Anniversary celebration. Some of that celebration will make its way into our website.

Check out our website pages. Details about our virtual 2021 State Convention have been posted. Learn about our Junior Festivals where students audition at District Festivals and earn points for Gold Cups. See that the 2022 State Festival is again booked at East Central University after being cancelled for two years due to COVID.

“Words make you think,
Music makes you feel,
A song makes you feel a thought.”
E.Y. Harburg
(note: he wrote lyrics for “Over the Rainbow”)

Music has been a part of my life since the third grade when I started piano lessons. Perhaps you have had a similar experience. OFMC is dedicated to bringing the spiritualizing force of music to the inner life of our nation, to our cities, to our children.
