Music is in the Air!

Students it's time to sing, la, la, la, la, la. On Tuesday, October 12, the Deuel Middle School student went to the Hamlin Education Center for a Middle School Music Festival. At 9:30 in the morning the middle school students arrived at the Hamlin Education Center to start rehearsing their songs.

The Middle School students left at 8:30 a.m. for Hamlin. When the middle school students got to the school, they had to start rehearshing the music for the next seven hours. When they got done rehearsing they ate dinner. Later on rehearsed some more, and then ate supper. "After supper we watched movies and had the choice between Karate Kid and Sandlot," said Justin Freese. "When all of the rehearsing was done, we ended the day with a concert at 7:00 p.m., so the parents could come watch their kids sing and play in the band," said Beth Hansen.

Deuel Middle School has been attending the festival for three years. "I feel that it is a good experience for our middle school choir members," said Hansen. "It's beneficial for the students to experience another teachers way of explaining things." Schools that usually attend the festical are area schools, such as Castlewood, Florence, Milbank, Oldham-Ramona, Lake Preston, Willow Lake, and Hamlin. One piece of advise I would give middle school students is to sing your heart out and keep with it.
