If I have a contact list, say "Classmates", can I search for any emails from those contacts in Gmail without expanding the list?

I can expand the list into individual names e.g.:

from: (bob@school.edu OR alice@school.edu OR fred@oldschool.edu)

This does not work well if the list is heavily dynamic; I have to update the search filter each time I update the list. What I would like to do is have a filter that applies to the un-expanded contact list. Is this possible?
