10 Westside Middle School students have been selected for the prestigious Nebraska Middle School Honor Choir, an elite assembly including the state’s most talented young vocalists.
WMS students chosen to participate are Elena Rosenblatt, Elina Gigantelli, Elinor Bowen, Sanaa Slaughter, Lina Shukry, Ethan NewMeyer, Aidan Upton, Kidus Tewodros, Wyatt Almeida, and Jack Scioli.
Nicholas Djernes leads the Westside Middle School vocal music program, directing numerous classes and opportunities including large group choirs and smaller group performance choirs.
“We have an 8th grade choir program of 209 students, and these students will represent us well,” said Djernes. “The work my kids have done to engage in vocal music and develop a level of commitment to the art form is impressive.”
