Sing Around Nebraska

SAN is a powerful choral opportunity for students in grades 4, 5, and 6, which fosters the love of singing! In February of even-numbered years, there is a Festival Choir (non-auditioned) held at 10 or more sites around Nebraska. During the fall of even-numbered years (the fall immediately following the festival), there is an honor choir (auditioned), usually held at a site in Lincoln, NE, for 5th and 6th graders.
