Whether composing and arranging or appearing in settings ranging from solo artist to big band, Andrew Walesch, a St. Cloud, Minnesota native, is a seasoned professional singer, pianist, and performer. His keen sensibility to find and interpret a great lyric has led to some great opportunities, including an appearance on the nationally syndicated NPR broadcast Mountain Stage and in 2023, an invitation to sing at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City for the 33rd Annual Cabaret Convention. In January of 2023, he was awarded the position of Artistic Director of the National Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona.
Billy Peterson is one of the most celebrated bass players in the world. His uncompromising talents as a performer, composer, arranger and producer have brought him widespread recognition. This world-renowned bassist is often compared to a chameleon because he can fill so many positions and because he is at home in rock, pop, R&B, soul, jazz, folk or country.
Peterson's contributions to the music scene are inestimable and his enthusiasm for the bass is stunning. He is permanently in-demand as a bassist and known for his work with Carlos Santana, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Prince, Les Paul and Steve Miller, among many other internationally acclaimed artists.
Glenn's studies of music, science, technology and Buddhism combine in an effortless mastery of time and tone. At an early age, Glenn became one of the Twin Cities’ leading drummers in both live venues and the studio. He was a staff drummer at Creation Audio and worked with Minneapolis’ leading recording icons, including Herb Pilhoffer and Chris Moon. He co-authored, “Behind the Shades” with Sheila Raye Charles (daughter of Ray Charles) and produced and toured Japan with Sheila.
In 2010 he worked with Pippi Ardennia and co-founded PipJazz Foundation, a program that mentors talented jazz youth. Glenn is currently the Artistic Director for OACC.
