Come hear the three choirs sing a variety of light classical, foreign language and folk music. Choir alumni will be invited onstage to sing with the combined choirs during the choir's traditional finale "River in Judea."
The Lincoln Boys Choir organization is comprised of three choirs of more than 100 boys, ages 8-18, selected by audition to perform in one of three groups. Concert Choir, under the direction of Kevin Scheele and accompanied by Julie Schumacher, performed with the Omaha Symphonic Chorus and Omaha Symphony at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral in December. Scheele will also lead Concert Choir at a tour performance in York, NE on May 4th. Cantare and Chorale choirs are both under the direction of Burton Schernikau and accompanied by Karen Karr Ammons. Chorale, composed of middle school singers, recently completed a tour of four Lincoln elementary schools.
The choirs have performed with the University of Nebraska Men's Choir, Nebraska Wesleyan University Choir, and Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra in the past. Touring has included: Kansas City, New York City, Chicago, Austria, Ireland, Czech Republic, and Italy where they sang at the Vatican.
In 2014, the Lincoln Boys Choir received the Richard Hay Arts Organization Award selected by the mayor of Lincoln and the Lincoln Arts Council. The award recognizes an arts group that has made significant contributions to Lincoln's arts community over a period of several years.
