Spring Activities at LSE
1: Cozad A Cappella Choir
Just before spring break, a choir
from Cozad High School visited our afternoon vocal music classes while
on tour in Lincoln. They stayed for about an hour, first watching
a performance by C&N, and then performing for C&N and Singing
Knights. It was great to have them visit, and our students
enjoyed getting to meet some new people and to be entertained .

Ars Nova in Columbus
On March 17, Ars Nova traveled to Columbus for an NCDA-sponsored
all-day jazz festival. They got to perform for and work with
well-known jazz and choral artist Vijay Singh,
and also participated in clinics and workshops with several of the top
regional vocal jazz educators. At the end of the day, 24 festival
participants were selected to participate in this summer's All-State
Jazz Choir. With about 20 choirs (around 300 students) in
attendance, five of the eight Ars Novians remaining at the festival
were chosen for this honor. Needless to say, we were very
proud! Here are some pictures of them receiving their awards:
