Those attending the Osakis High School Music Department's Winter Band Concert Dec.17 heard a little bit of everything.

There were holiday-themed songs, such as Carol of the Bells, Celtic Carol, African Noel and Feliz Navidad, along with jazzy renditions like Get Over It!, El Taco Rocko and Bad Hair Day — and a lot of other selections in-between, from El Toro Rojo Grande to the theme from the TV series, Coach.

The program at the Fine Arts Auditorium included 16 performances featuring the Osakis High School Junior Band, Senior Band and Jazz Band under the direction of Randy Resley.
