OHS Band and Choir to host concerts

The Oregon High School music department has two upcoming performances.

The Oregon High School jazz band will host its annual jazz dance on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m. in the OHS band/choir room.  

Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children, which includes refreshments. Enter the high school by the pillars on Tenth Street.  

The David L. Rahn Junior High jazz band will also perform a few numbers.  

“Sit and enjoy a variety of jazz styles and/or get up and dance to your favorite classics,” said Andy Eckardt, band director. 

The Oregon High School band and choir spring concert will be held on Monday, May 12 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.  

The performance is in the OHS band/choir room, which is located off the Tenth Street entrance to the high school.

The OHS concert band and concert choir will perform. Senior awards will be presented at the end of the concert.

“These students are fresh off their state competition in which they received 4th place in the state (Class B). They are excited to share their music with family, friends, and the community,” said Eckardt.

The spring concert is the final full band performance of the school year. 

The band hopes to start the fall marching band season wearing new uniforms. Current uniforms are 17 years old, and the band needs to raise $25,000 to replace them. 

Contributions from community members, fundraising, and the support of the school district have raised most of the funds. Proceeds from the jazz dance will go to the fund but additional donations are welcome. For more information contact Eckardt at
