The Kimball Elementary School held their winter concert at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23.
Directors were Arlene Sands for the vocal section, and Keith Haake directing the instrumental band portion of the concert.
Grade 5 opened with a vocal number "The Concert Etiquette Rap," followed by the Elementary Band playing four pieces: "The Crusaders," "Mixed Musical Medley," "Go for the Gold March," and "Procession of the Cyborgs."
The grades four, five and six together sang "Rock and Roll Forever, How it all Began," grade five sang "Rock and Roll is Here to Stay" and "Blue Suede Shoes."
Grade six sang "Surfin U.S.A." and "Tutti Frutti."
Grade four sang "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Rock and Roll Forever," and "Free at Last."
Announcers Jenna Lund and Athena Capes presented Kimball's Got Talent featuring Michael Binsfeld, Trinity Erickson, Jarret Edwards, Kaitli Wicker, Ashley Schindelle, Rachel Utecht, Cailyn Kuechle, Maddi Fox, Sophia Walz, Abbey Schiefelbein, and Danielle Lyrek.
The final number was "America the Beautiful" with the audience singing along.
The fourth-grade students made the posters and decoration for the concert.
There was an overwhelming turnout of parents and community to support the young musicians. We are fortunate in Kimball to have this musical experience and teaching in our community.
