Despite the snow Monday evening, Beatrice High School students sung "It's a Beautiful Day," "Blue Skies" and other songs during their fall choral concert in the Hevelone Center for Performing Arts.
Pieces were performed by the William of Orange Singers, First Edition, Limited Edition and the Concert Choir. There were also several soloists throughout the evening, including Mariah Cook, Zack Ross, Grace MacNett, Trey Baehr, Nolan Marlatt, Brianna Brewer, MaKenna Blum, Matt Price, Maya Moran and Roel Navarrete.
Vocal director Kelly Meyer said that this is the only time First Edition and Limited Edition will perform these songs without choreography and accompaniment by the high school Jazz Band.

"This just kind of gives you a taste of what we've been working on so far this school year," Meyer said.
First Edition sang "Good Times are Coming," "Welcome to Mystery," "Never Alone" and "Dream with Open Eyes," which Meyer says focuses on the theme of unity.
Limited Edition's pieces were also centered on a theme: elements.
The show ended with the Concert Choir's performance of "Gospel America," a medley of patriotic music that Meyer says will also be sung during the Veteran's Day program at 10 a.m. on Nov. 11, also in the Hevelone.
The choir will perform their last concert of 2019 alongside the BHS band in a winter concert on Dec. 9 at 7p.m.
