Artist Series


Each year at our annual conference, a call is put out to Texoma members for proposals to present lectures, recitals, programs, and/or performances. Under Richard Berry's tenure as governor, we began to call this part of the program the Texoma Artist Series. The call for proposals traditionally goes out in late spring.  A committee, chosen by the Region Governor, reviews submissions and chooses the presentations.

TEXOMA POLICY: Members will not be selected to perform in consecutive years and may not be considered for more than one proposal in the same year.
