Many thanks to all of those that helped with the arrangements for the St. Olaf College Band.  Your efforts were greatly appreciated by our guests as well as BC & JS.  

A special thanks to Mr. Shawn Hudson for sharing his talents of recording the concert so that St. Olaf could use it in preparation for the remainder of the tour.  

The Dr. Mahr and the St. Olaf Band members were impressed with our wonderful facilities.   Let's not forget how fortunate we are to have state of the art facilities.  We are lucky to have a community that supports the arts so strongly.  


St. Olaf Band Concert Times

I meant to include in the previous email:

The concert will last from about 7:00pm to about 8:40pm.  

Also, a reminder that on Tuesday, students will have a two hour delay due to a teacher in-service.  

See you Monday evening!

St. Olaf Band Facebook page

Hi Bobcat Bands & Parents, 

         I have a request. The St. Olaf Band Facebook page had 1150 likes. Our goal is to break 2000 by Carnegie Hall.

         This week, would you please get out their phones and like "The St. Olaf Band" page? If we get 100 from each host school, we'll reach our goal.

        (They'll also find great posts ...)

Thanks for your help with our challenge.  Terra Widdifield, St. Olaf Band Manager
