Boone Central students tour Europe as music ambassadors

MUSIC AMBASSADORS from Boone Central who toured Europe recently included, l.-r., teacher Michele Wright, Natalee Luettel, Abby Mousel, Brian Mock, Seth Wright and Bailey Choat.

In June, the Nebraska Ambassadors of Music spent two weeks touring and performing in seven countries in Europe: England, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Italy and Germany.
Boone Central students Bailey Choat, Natalee Luettel, Abby Mousel, Brian Mock and Seth Wright, as well as Boone Central vocal music director Michele Wright, traveled and performed with the group.
The 2019 Nebraska Ambassadors of Music (NAM) was made up of nearly 300 students and adults, and included an 18-piece string orchestra, a 150-piece concert band, and a 150-person choir.
Many students participated in both an instrumental ensemble and the choir. Students from throughout Nebraska were nominated by their music directors in order to be eligible for the group. The Nebraska Ambassadors travel to Europe every two years.

The group made performance and tour stops in London and Paris, Switzerland and Venice, Italy, among others.
