LUSK – The combined NCHS and Middle School Choir and Band, under the direction of Kiara Smith, recent graduate of the University of Wyoming, presented a fine Spring Concert for their friends and family members during the evening Tuesday, on May 10, 2022. The audience was impressed by the progress the groups have made in the few months since Kiara Smith took over the challenge of building the music program.
The combined choir made up of students in Lusk Middle School and NCHS School sang three numbers; ”What About Us,” “Home,” and “Vuelie” and improved with each one as they gained confidence for the appreciative audience. The combined band was also a fine example of hard work, learning to blend their music with fellow musicians, including the percussion section. The music chosen for them was well suited for the size of the band: “Respect,” I’m Still standing,” and “We Will Rock You.” It was evident the band loved rhythm as they played the last number with enthusiasm.
