The free concert will take place in O'Donnell Auditorium on Nebraska Wesleyan's campus at 7 p.m. on March 4th.
Over one hundred and fifty singers from eleven eastern-Nebraska high schools will participate in this year’s Youth in Harmony clinic.
The free clinic starts around noon and finishes with a free public concert at 7:00 p.m.
The students will spend the afternoon learning four-part, a cappella choral arrangements to perform at the evening concert. The guest clinician is Robert Mance, the director of the internationally-ranked Kansas City chorus, Central Standard, assisted by members of his chorus.
Nebraska Wesleyan University is providing, free-of-charge, O’Donnell auditorium for the clinic and concert, and an evening meal for the students and their teachers.
This is the ninth year for the popular Youth in Harmony clinic, one of several community-service projects of the Lincoln Continentals. The event is also sponsored by Beatrice Homestead Chorus and Nebraska City’s Apple Corp. The popularity of this event stems, in part, from the unique opportunity for music teachers to attract more male singers and introduce them to men’s a cappella singing. Several returning schools have now developed their own barbershop quartets.
The free public concert will feature the high school mass-chorus and performances by a Central Standard quartet, Doane College a cappella group, Double Wide, and The Lincoln Continentals.
