After Neligh-Oakdale's spring concert was repeatedly postponed due to weather, the show was able to go on Monday night.
"Welcome to the spring concert that is finally here!" music teacher Jamie Sehi said to the crowd as she smiled and thrust her hands into the air in celebration. "We've been waiting almost a month for this."
Sehi expressed her gratitude to the students for their hard work and ability to handle the adversity they've faced this year. She followed it up by saying, "It wouldn't be the same without a couple jokes," as she told several Nate Metschke-style groaners.
The concert kicked off with a vocal solo of "Homeward Bound," sung by senior Cade Wilkinson. A flute duet of "Spinning Song" by Jorden Fulsaas and Griffin Claussen and "I Am Still Your Dreamer" by the women's glee were next.
Dani Beyer and Wilkinson sang a duet of "You Raise Me Up" as a tribute to Metschke. Tears were flowing as the students and crowd gave them a standing ovation in the end.
The program concluded with three songs by the choir, under the direction of Sehi, and three selections by the band, under the direction of Molly Burbach.
