Holiday Concert Near for LHS Choir

December 5, 2017

As we near the end of first semester it is satisfying to look back and see all of the great work we’ve done in the vocal music program this fall. Our high school students had the opportunity to attend a two-day clinic with Mack Wilberg, the music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and sing a concert of his music with him conducting. 2018 is the 5th year the LHS choir has participated in this clinic hosted by UNK. The performance was a combined group of nearly 400 singers made up of students from Lexington High School, Kearney High School, Minden High School, Hastings High School, Nebraska Christian High School and the UNK Choraleer Choir. It is a rare and valuable opportunity to rehearse music with the composer himself as the director and our students learned a great deal from Dr. Wilberg. Currently the LHS choir is preparing music for our upcoming Holiday Concert on December 11th. We will feature two songs from Mack Wilberg as well as some seasonal classics. 

In addition to preparing concerts, the HS singers have also completed auditions for the school musical “Little Shop of Horrors”. Rehearsals have just recently begun and we will be working hard through December and January to bring a giant man-eating plant from outer space to life.

Our Middle School choirs have been working on their music reading and music vocabulary skills as well as preparing for our upcoming Holiday concert on December 14th.  The 8th grade choir gave a special performance for the LMS Veteran’s Day program and did a spectacular job. The 6th, 7th and 8th grade choirs will all three be featured in our Holiday performance.
