Oklahoma MTA held its annual conference at Oklahoma Christian University in Edmund, Oklahoma, June 3-4.

To encourage and motivate young composers in their state, OMTA has appointed a committee to plan a new state composition festival.

Convention highlights included a youth orchestra featuring Texas MTA performance competition winners, a recital of student composition winners, seven student concerts featuring 10-piano ensembles, state performance competitions, clinics for chamber music, guitar and composition, and the 2005 Commissioned Composer and New Collegiate Faculty concert.
