Students from Mabel-Canton Elementary School participated in the "Celebration of Young Musicians" festival held at Lanesboro on April 12. Fourth, fifth and sixth grade students from Lanesboro, Rushford-Peterson, Houston and Mabel-Canton rehearsed throughout the day and presented a concert for the public at 7 that same evening. Cathy Schmitt from Winona State University was the choral conductor, and Bob Walser from Minneapolis was the movement specialist. Students rehearsed selected choral music with the choral clinician, and they learned and performed folk dances from around the world with the movement specialist. The Minnesota Music Educator's Association sponsors these festivals at various locations around the state during March and April.
