Two Nationally Renowned Catholic Recording Artists to Perform at free North Platte Concert

Event Dates and Times

3/18/2017
McDaid Elementary McGahan Activities Center
A special, free concert is planned for the general public during the Going Bananas For Jesus weekend in North Platte, on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Bananas is known as a Catholic Youth Retreat for young people. In its 30th anniversary year, the event lets them explore their faith and create a better relationship with God and Jesus.
"As we plan the in North Platte, we hear so often, "I was at the very first Bananas in Scottsbluff! And it meant so much to me," says Moriah Eickhoff, member of the Going Bananas For Jesus committee. "We just knew we had to do something special for those who have attended and supported Bananas over 30 years!" says Eickhoff.
The something special is a free, public, concert hosted Saturday night at McDaid Elementary's McGahan Activities Center in North Platte. On Saturday, March 18th, at 7:30 p.m., Jesse Manibusan and ValLimar Jensen will perform in a professionally produced concert with lights, cameras, video screen, and sound system.
Adults, families, and young people of all faiths from the region are invited to attend and celebrate their faith.
"Manibusan and Jansen are the keynote speakers and presenters for the weekend," says Eickhoff, "these two Catholic catechists are sharing music and faith stories with the young people attending the weekend, then Saturday night, they will perform for the general public."
Eickhoff says the youth participating in the Bananas weekend will not be at the concert as they are attending in their Saturday night dance. "The Saturday night dance is a tradition for Bananas, only participants and supervisors are allowed to attend that," says Eickhoff, "so Manibusan and Jansen agreed to perform Saturday night for everyone else!"
Jesse Manibusan is a composer, singer/songwriter, storyteller, humorist, catechist, evangelizer and encourager. Manibusan has that knack to build instant rapport, connect to his audience, and create life-giving memories that help deepen faith and cultivate the joy that inspires service, sacrifice and the celebration of life.
ValLimar Jansen is a highly regarded singer, composer and recording artist. She is educated and experienced as a university/college professor, a leader of worship and prayer and a workshop presenter at conferences across the United States and abroad. ValLimar Jansen has a long history of singing sacred music.
"They encourage people to mark their calendars, and make an effort to be in North Platte on Saturday, March 18th, for the concert. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have such high caliber talent in the region," says Eickhoff.

North Platte
This selection from the permanent collection of the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts features works that demonstrate the significant impact a change of location can have on the artistic process. Artists from across the country and around the world visit the small riverside town in the Great Plains through their artist in residence program. They are inevitably influenced by this new environment. Some artists engage directly with the location, community, and history, while others find that limitations of travel and new facilities create modifications and problem-solving strategies that add to their long-term practice.

These works represent a broad spectrum of the creative process, including works developed prior to the residency, experiments while in residence and projects that are completed much later, but initially instigated at Kimmel’s residency program.

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is an artists’ residency program in Nebraska City, NE. They offer living and studio accommodations to writers, composers, visual and interdisciplinary artists on a competitive basis. Residency programs are often referred to as “gifts of time and space.” Artists travel to a host location, where they have a concentrated period of time to turn their sole focus to their creative endeavor. While the initial lure of a residency is often uninterrupted time, residencies often do disrupt a creative practice – constructively -- through the influence of place.

Lincoln, Logan & McPherson Counties
Youth between the ages of 15 to 19 from Lincoln, Logan and McPherson Counties have the opportunity to learn about government processes in the vibrant, living classroom of the nation’s capital as part of Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF), an intensive 4-H civic engagement program for high-school youth held at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, MD. Area 4-H members participate in this program every three years. Plans are being made for the next program in June 2018. To learn more about this program contact Nebraska Extension in North Platte at baufdenkamp1@unl.edu or by calling 308-532-2683.

Youth who are not actively enrolled in 4-H are being sought to fill open participant spots. This program will depart early June 2018 for a 15 day chartered motor coach trip visiting St Louis, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, Gettysburg, Canada and Washington D.C.

While in Washington D.C. the group will stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center. Youth interact with youth form across the country while participating in civic workshops, committees, and field trips before returning home to make positive changes in their own communities. CWF not only strengthens young people’s understanding of the government’s civic process, but it also boosts their leadership skills, communication skills, and overall confidence.
During CWF, youth get a behind-the-scenes look at the nation’s capital while meeting with Members of Congress to learn more about how their government works. At the end of the program, youth draft step-by-step action plans to address important issues in their communities.
For more information contact, Brenda Aufdenkamp, UNL Extension Educator in Lincoln, Logan, McPherson Counties at baufdenkamp1@unl.edu or call 308-532-2683.
