This week, students in the choir and orchestra programs at the Oshkosh Area School District have been working to put together an “electrifying” concert.
It’s a part of the “Electrify your Strings and Choir” program that has been helping students open up through music for almost 20 years.
Mark Wood is a founding member of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and says that the program is meant to stir things up for young musicians.
“We come in to sort of traditional choir and music programs and we rattle the cages and let the kids stretch a little bit,” he said.
Instead of classical music, students will preform songs by Led Zepplin, Michael Jackson, and Ozzy Osbourne, among others in their concert on Friday.
The event begins at 7 p.m. at the Menominee Nation Arena, and tickets start at $12.
