Community Rocks! to benefit Roosevelt Park Zoo

After two sold-out shows, the third annual Community Rocks! 2017 concert will be Feb. 4 at The Grand. Doors open at 6 p.m., heavy appetizers available, with music beginning at 7 p.m. Erik Anderson, chair and professor within the Minot State University Division of Music, will conduct the Community Rocks Symphony Orchestra in 15 rock classics from the ’60s to the present. Melissa Spelchen, assistant professor of criminal justice, pictured right, will provide lead vocals.

There will be numerous live and silent auction items; this year's beneficiary is the Roosevelt Park Children's Zoo. Tickets are available at the Roosevelt Park Zoo, Jacobsen's Music and Classic Rock Coffee Co.

Co-founded by Anderson and Andy Bertsch, management professor, Community Rocks! exemplifies local initiative and talent coming together to benefit the community. The orchestra consists of local string, brass, and wind players, plus trap set and electric bass. For questions, contact Anderson at or 858-3576.
