Rates and Registration


Online registration is closed. To register, please visit us on-site in Jacksonville, Florida


What do I do when online registration has closed?

Online registration will close for a short period right before the conference for OAKE to prepare materials and transition to the conference site. Registration will resume at the Conference in-person. If you plan to register on-site, please have our print-version of the registration form filled out in advance to bring to OAKE Registration in-person. Forms and schedules are posted. See the online conference schedule for times the Registration Table will be open.

Online Registration Closes: MARCH 10, 2023

Registration Types

Full Registration: Grants access to all Conference breakout sessions and conference events from Thursday through Sunday, unless otherwise stipulated as separately ticketed events. Includes reception tickets and concert tickets.

One Day Registration: Choices are Friday or Saturday and include tickets to receptions and concerts that day.
Conference events on Thursday starting after 7 pm are open to anyone.


Extra Additions

Mini-Conference: This is a separate ticket purchase and is not included with your regular Conference Registration price. The Mini-Conference is traditionally led by a nationally known clinician and is scheduled from 1 pm to 4 pm on Thursday of the Conference.

OAKE Participant Choir: A choir made from Conference Attendees. Rehearsals will not conflict with sessions. The performance is a half-hour choral demonstration with the director. Registration can be submitted at any point leading up to the Conference. Rates will change after the Early Bird rate deadline. 

Printed Session Notes: Spiral-bound booklet containing schedules, maps, & clinician handouts. A small amount of extra session books will be available for purchase on site, on a first come, first serve basis.

Conference Materials: All conference materials will be available for free through our Conference App Guidebook. Any attendee who is pre-registered for the conference will receive conference materials before the conference. 


What is Early Bird Registration?

OAKE offers discounted registration up to the Early Bird deadline. Once that date is passed, registration prices change to the regular rates. 


What is the difference between registering online and registering on-site?

Registering for the conference online saves time for both you and OAKE. Here are just some of the benefits:
Receive emailed updates and announcements prior to the conference, get first access to the Guidebook app and session handouts, guarantee your copy of Printed Session Notes (if purchased), your name badge will be ready to go when you check in at registration and check-in time will be smoother for everyone, opportunity to get involved with the Newcomers Program or as a Session Host or Monitor, and help OAKE anticipate attendance numbers and provide the best experience for attendees.


Is Graduate Credit Offered?

Yes, graduate credit for conference attendance is available from the Kodály Music Institute: https://www.kodalymusicinstitute.org
