LMS Vocal Music

December 11, 2014

Life has been very exciting in the vocal music department this semester.  In October, the high school choir had the opportunity to partner with the Kearney High Chorale and the UNK Choraleers for a joint concert at UNK.  Our students spent two days on campus in Kearney working with composer David Childs preparing a concert of his music.  This is the second year that the Lexington High School Choir has had the chance to participate in this performance and it is an amazing learning opportunity for our students.

In November, our 8th grade choir students gave a special performance for the Middle School Veteran’s Day program.  The 8th graders led the assembly in the National Anthem and then performed the piece “One Great Nation” by Stephen Lawrence.  They did a fantastic job and it was a pleasure to participate in this ceremony to honor our veterans.

All choirs are now preparing for our upcoming winter concerts, December 15th for the Middle School and December 18th for the High School.  We are excited for the opportunity to demonstrate all that we’ve learned this semester and treat the audience to a great performance and some festive, holiday music.

In addition to all the choral activities going on this semester, we are also excited to announce that Lexington High School will be offering three performances of the musical OKLAHOMA but Rogers and Hammerstein on March 9, 10 &11.  Auditions will be taking place on December 16th at the High School and rehearsals will begin immediately following Christmas break.
