NORTH PLATTE, Neb. Talented youth from all over Nebraska gathered at North Platte High School for a choir concert on Saturday.

However, it wasn't just any choir concert- it was performed by students who were selected to sing with the Singing Youth of Nebraska Honor Choir.

Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Nebraska-Omaha Dr. Derrick Fox conducted the group.

Music teachers from their respective schools prepared the youth by helping them with their music.

The final piece they performed was "Sing! Shout!" by David Ferrell Smith.

Dr. Fox thanked all of the students, teachers and parents for their hard work and for bringing their kids from all across the state to sing.
