For the past two months, a select group of 5th and 6th grade students representing Jefferson Intermediate have been meeting twice a week to prepare for the annual NCDA Sing Around Nebraska (SAN) Festival. SAN is a powerful choral opportunity for students in grades 4, 5, & 6 which fosters the love of singing! In February of even-numbered years, there is a Festival Choir (non-auditioned) held at 10 or more sites around Nebraska. During the fall of even-numbered years, there is an honor choir (auditioned), usually held at a site in Lincoln, NE for 5th and 6th graders.
Due to the weather, they have moved our Sing Around Nebraska event to Saturday, February 17. We will travel to Central City, NE and perform in their beautiful Performing Arts Center. Students will spend the day working with clinician and local music educator, Mrs. Celeste Ditter. Our students will join 140 other 5th and 6th graders from around the area to create a collaborative program which will be shared with the public at 4:00pm that afternoon. Tickets are $3/adult or free/12&under. Doors open at 3:30pm. The program will be 30-45 minutes.
Please congratulate the following students on their achievement and hard work!
