Two art mediums met in one place at a concert and art exhibit that celebrated life.
The Inman Intermediate School select choir, a group of sixth grade music students from Nixa, put on a concert Jan. 17, with a program entitled “Each Life is Sacred.” The concert at South Haven Baptist Church in Springfield featured the sixth-graders’ collaboration with art students from Nixa High School.
The Inman select choir is a group of 43 students who sang their way through an audition process. The choir meets once per week for practice.
The program is written to, “spread a feeling of joy and wonder to others.”
“We hope that our program will help remind you that the voices of younger generations are worthy of awe and respect. Young or old, every person in our world has value. Each life is sacred,” the ensemble shared with its audience in its program notes.
Students in Megan Johnson’s art class listened to the music that the younger students would be performing and created visual art pieces inspired by the songs.
The Inman select choir, under the direction of teacher Blake Richter, will perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association state conference in Osage Beach on Jan. 24.
