2016 Spring Generations Band

Join the Band!

We hope to make the final piece during the spring instrumental concert on May 16, a generations band - featuring all bands 5th-12th combined. We also invite faculty, staff, alumni, family members – any version of the Oak Grove family you can imagine – to participate. Last year, this ended up being over 100 performers.  

This year the piece, A Festival of Hymns, includes parts for almost any imaginable instrument, band or orchestra.  Parts are written for piano, guitar, electric and string bass, cello, violin, viola. 

If you’ve participated in the past – please return! If you have been holding out, and secretly have played the cello (you know who you are), please consider joining us. 

If you would like to join the generations band contact Mrs. Renee O'Connor at 701-373-7177 or email at renee.oconnor@oakgrovelutheran.com. Need an instrument? Mrs. O'Connor can do that too.
