Sing Around Nebraska Coming!
Since 1996, Ainsworth Community Schools has participated in Sing Around Nebraska Honor Choir event sponsored by Nebraska Choral Director’s Association. From the beginning, concerts were held in Bartlett. Beginning this year, Ainsworth Community Schools will host the event. Saturday, February 15 th, the school gym will be alive with rehearsals, with students from 6 schools participating. The final concert will be held in the gym at 4:00. It is open to the public and everyone is encouraged and welcome to attend.
The goals of Sing Around Nebraska are: To provide students with an exciting and quality choral experience with other students from their festival area. To provide an opportunity for honor music students who are ready for more challenging music to work with a guest clinician.To provide music teachers an opportunity to observe and learn from the clinician working with the students, and to share with other teachers. To sing quality children’s choral repertoire, and help districts build a music library of such music. Students audition for their spots to be part of the choir, and rehearse after school for six weeks to have their music learned by the day of the event. Rehearsals are held that day to blend the voices of many students into a choir of many. Guest clinicians and musicians help make the day special and the concert is always well received.
Mrs. Nilson and Ms. Bejot are excited to be able to host this and look forward to hosting it in the future!
