The Gering Harmony group performed in the annual Old West Balloon Fest parade last weekend. They had been preparing very hard for this event because it is one of their biggest contests of the year. Despite all of their hard work, they were not able to receive a call back like they have in the past. Although many will view this as a set back, senior Riley Schilz is going to use it as motivation, “I think that we performed well, but we had some things that needed a little bit more work.”

As well as Riley, another fellow senior, Kyle Schroeder had some positives that came out of this weekend, “I think that we performed well as a group, but there are still those little things that are separating us from being a good group to a great group.” Kyle has been in harmony for three years, and has had fun all three years. His most memorable year so far has been sophomore year, but he is still excited to see what the rest of this year will bring him.

Another member that has been involved for a few years is senior Olivia Schaub, “I thought that we performed well. We had been preparing a lot and it was a good experience. I am sad that we did not make call backs, but I am glad that we got the chance to perform.”

First year Harmony member, Nathan VanAnne was frustrated with how the judging went, “I think that the judges did not realize the potential that we have, and we should have been beating out some of the other groups that got a call back in my opinion. I am still grateful for the judges that volunteered their time. I am still proud of how we performed and I am excited to see what we can do with more practice.”  

The Gering Harmony will perform again in the Imperial competition and will look forward to practicing and perfecting their dances and songs. Good job and good luck!
