Last Saturday 14 Wauneta-Palisade choir students participated in Sing Around Nebraska (SAN), an honor choir of fifth and sixth grade students. Participating students must audition to sing with the chorus.

The event is held at 12 different locations across the state. WP students participated in the event at Hershey. The experience culminated with a program of 180 students from across the area singing together.

According to WP choir teacher Sara Behrends, there are two main benefits to the students who participate.

First, the students have the opportunity to sing two-part music which Behrends says is hard to accomplish in a classroom. “At Sing Around Nebraska they are singing with lots of other kids who are also proficient singers, which is a great experience,” says Behrends.

The second major benefit to WP students is that they get to work under a guest conductor, this year a male teacher from Scottsbluff. Behrends goes on to say that working under a male singer is a great opportunity, especially for the boys.
