Music Program Update
By Angie Murphy, Exeter-Milligan Music Instructor
The Exeter-Milligan elementary students had the opportunity to watch The Nutcracker before Christmas break this year, courtesy of American Midwest Ballet. The ballet company typically has matinee performances in Omaha for school students to attend, but provided a free viewing this year due to Covid-19. The classes learned routines to several songs from The Nutcracker for their virtual concert this year and were excited when those pieces were performed by the dancers. The battle scene, falling snow, and costumes were highlights for the students. Pictured are the Milligan site elementary students watching the performance.
