Columbus Middle School was awarded the Outstanding Musical Theater Production in the Middle Level category for their production of Children of Eden Jr. presented by the Omaha Performing Arts.
It was actually the 22nd annual Heartland Choral festival in Henderson, Nebraska hosted by Mr. Lynn Hall and featuring 6 – 9th graders from across Eastern Nebraska. Celeste directed the girls side, I directed the boys, and then we combined for the last song, “Rhythm Of Life”.
Celeste recently completed her Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Doane University. She was joined by Scott, Josh, Harry, and Lennie, and Fred & Becky
Jacob & Sons! Way to go Jacob Ritter and the cast from the CHS musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” You all rock.
Had an awesome time in Friend with students and directors from the Pioneer Conference in Friend. Thanks to Devin Rethman for all of her work to put the festival together and to Zach Weir for his amazing keyboard skills!
Last night we were privileged to sing at the Columbus Library for their summer concert series for about an hour. So much fun singing for wonderful family, friends, and the great folks of Columbus. Thanks Friends Board of the Columbus Library for inviting us.
