The Oak Hill Academy Praise Band is a group of musically inclined students who perform contemporary praise and worship songs during church services at Young’s Chapel Baptist Church as well as during Vespers services. The band consists of nine students who can sing or play a string or percussion instrument.
“Praise Band gives students a way to explore talents they never had and maybe develop new ones,” stated CiCi Wang ’19. The group’s next performance will be at the May 5th Senior Sunday service in which the school and church community come together to celebrate the graduating class.
They are currently coming up with a stellar performance that captures the day’s essence.
The faculty sponsor, Mr. Taylor Conn, hopes that more students will join next year and help to expand the band’s repertoire.
