Oklahoma State University Chorale, Brass, and Percussion with OSU Director of Choral and Vocal Studies Dr. Z. Randall Stroope — together with Richland, Plano, Haltom, and Byron Nelson High Schools and Guest Composers Eric William Barnum and Daniel Elder — will be on “The Cutting Edge” with this unique musical presentation.
Rev. Frank Schaefer was a United Methodist minister in a small Pennsylvania town until he was put on trial in the Church for officiating the same-sex wedding of his eldest son, Tim. Schaefer was given a choice — vow to never again preside over a same-sex wedding or lose his credentials as a minister.
