St. Mary's 4th and 5th graders took up their instruments and played at the Holland Center for the Performing Arts March 15th. What a sight as our students joined about one thousand other students from the Bellevue and Omaha areas to play their recorders with the Omaha Symphony Orchestra. The St. Mary's students had a wonderful surprise at the concert when they learned the lyrics they wrote to accompany the William Tell Overture theme had been selected to be performed by everyone! Their lyrics were sung at all three performances of the Communities LinkUp! event. Callie Billings (not pictured), a St. Mary's fifth grade student, had the privilege of being selected to sit onstage with the orchestra throughout the concert. The rest of the students sat in the front rows of the orchestra level section. Talk about an up close and personal experience!
