The Lincoln Boys Choir will perform their annual Spring Melodies concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 15 in the O’Donnell Auditorium at the Vance D. Rogers Center for Fine Arts, Nebraska Wesleyan University, 50th and Huntington street.
Composed of three ensembles, the Lincoln Boys Choir welcomes boys from 8 to 18 years old. Concert Choir is the introductory choir for boys in elementary school, while advanced singers with unchanged voices participate in Chorale. The members of Cantare sing with different voices. All members audition for placement in choirs.
Although music teachers are encouraged to recommend singers, interested families can schedule an audition directly on LincolnBoysChoir.org.
Kevin Scheele is artistic director of the organization and conducts Concert Choir and Chorale; both are accompanied by Julie Schumacher. Associate Director Eric Wyler directs Cantare, accompanied by Cathi Wagner, and contributes to the artistic objectives of the organization.
In 2019, the Lincoln Boys Choir became permanent artist-in-residence at Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church. Weekly rehearsals and the annual December concert take place in the church’s beautiful historic sanctuary.
