High school vocal and instrumental music students from 118 schools in Nebraska and Kansas have been selected to participate in the University of Nebraska at Kearneys Honor Band and Choral Clinic on Jan. 27.

The event includes 677 students and features three choirs and two bands, which rehearse all day before presenting a 6 p.m. concert at the UNK Health and Sports Center. Admission to the concert is $3. There is no admission charge for participants, music directors and preschool children.

As the students rehearse the music during the day, they receive important music instruction about making music and proper performing techniques that they can take back with them to their schools, said Clinic Director James Payne, UNK professor of music and performing arts.
