    On a wonderful, chilly night, the fifth through eighth grade band students from Nemaha Central and Saints Peter and Paul Schools along with the New Generations put on a “Jingling Winter Concert.” The fabulous performance was on Monday, December 11. The band students were all under the direction of Mr. Todd Krause and the pianist was Brenda Meyer.

    To begin the night, the New Generations opened the concert with the songs “Carol of the Bells,” “Little Drummer Boy,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Jolly Old St. Nicholas.” The New Generations group is directed by Mrs. Chelsey Haverkamp, and consists of six students.  Abraham Hilbert is the only returning member and the new members are fifth graders: Feryn Feldkamp, Addison Frye, Spencer Lockhart, Kaden Peterson, and Emmery Schmelzle.

    Kaden Peterson said, “I thought it was exciting that everyone showed up to watch us play.”

    After their fabulous performance, the fifth grade band came out to play their songs. There are 37 musicians in the fifth grade band and they played some familiar tunes titled “Hot Cross Buns,” “Listen To Our Sections,” and “Jingle Bells.” They sounded great for their first concert.

    Performing next were the 22 musicians that make up the sixth grade band. The sixth grade played “First Christmas Overture,” “Grandma got Run Over by a Reindeer,” and “Good King Wenceslas.” To wrap up the chilly night the seventh and eighth graders played “Rockin’ On The Housetop,” “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” There are 23 musicians in the seventh and eighth grade band.

    “It went a lot better than I thought. It was great!” said Emilie Strahm.

    The students from both schools hoped you enjoyed the concert and would like to wish you a Merry Christmas!
