First Nebraska Christian Music Festival a Success!

First Nebraska Christian Music Festival a Success!

[NFT] The First Nebraska Christian Musical was held June 20th at Brickyard Park in Hastings, NE. Despite storms the night before and threatening clouds throughout the day, there were smiles all around on the faces of organizers, volunteers, performers, and those listening to the music (see the June issue of the Nebraska Family Times for a list of performers).

According to organizer Dr. Mike Skoch, one of the organizers, “The festival was a rousing success by all measures. We are very grateful to those who braved the day, clouds and all. The music was simply outstanding! From the first band - Social Contradiction of Omaha - to the final group - the Salem Baptist Choir - also from Omaha - there was not a single group that even came close to disappointment. At one point I found myself sitting backstage with tears in my eyes at the wonder of it all, and the magnitude of God's infinite love for all of us. The music moved me. One of the day’s performers said, "Music speaks a language that words cannot."

According to Skoch, the Christian Music Festival will be held again next year, probably in August. The website, will be updated when dates are determined, and the Nebraska Family Times will also print information as it becomes available.
