Devils Lake, ND (WDAY TV) -- After more than 20 years, a North Dakota school is getting back in-tune with music.

A band is practicing at Lake Region State College. Enough students expressed interest to bring the program back. The college will offer more music classes and introduce music scholarships next year to recruit musicians.

Laurel Goulding with Lake Region State College says, "I think music just adds to everyone's lives ,and we see a lot of students coming to school here who played in their high school music programs and then when they get to college they don't have an opportunity to continue that."

The college is taking donations of used instruments. It's first concert will be at the home basketball game Wednesday.
