Juniors Travel to Lincoln to see Firebird Ballet

On Friday, February 16, members of the junior class made a trip to the Lied Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to see the Firebird ballet. This was a presentation of the American Ballet Theatre featuring the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.  Mr. Lund and Mr. Mangan accompanied the students on the trip, and Mr. Mangan gave the students a little background about the years and years of practice needed to perform in the ballet and the orchestra. The ballet was about 50 minutes long and was an adaptation of several Russian folktales involving an enchanted garden and a magic feather.
