It has been a busy, busy semester in the music department. Our students gave three excellent performances of “Rock of Ages, High School Edition” at the beginning of April. Two and a half months of hard work and preparation paid off in a big way. Some of the most popular and memorable songs from the hairbands of the 1980s set the stage for a classic love story.

Not long after the musical we had to regroup and get prepared for our final concert of the semester. Over the past 7 years I have been pleased to see continuous improvement and growth in the vocal program here at LHS. This concert was the most challenging literature we have performed, so far. The kids did a great job, worked hard and gave a solid performance. We are now rehearsing music for our portion of the commencement ceremony coming up on May 12th.

Students from both the band and choir are headed down the interstate on Friday, May 3rd to see the Omaha Symphony performance of “Star Wars in concert”. This is a great experience for our kids and an opportunity to hear some of Nebraska’s best musicians perform some fantastic Hollywood music.
