The Elkhorn South High School music department had a successful fall semester, earning several honors including both individual awards and group honors.  Notably, the ESHS Concert Choir was selected to perform at the 2022 Nebraska Music Educators Association conference after an involved process of submitting an audition and going through a panel review.  The Choir performance took place at the St. Paul Methodist Church on November 17, 2022, under the direction of Molly Gonring and Cal Cross.

Additionally, a large cohort of music department students represented the school as members of the 2022 All State and All National Choir, Band, Jazz Band, and Orchestra.  In total, 39 ESHS students were selected as All State musicians after a competitive audition process early this fall, competing against students across the state of Nebraska to be included in these ensembles.  Two ESHS music students were also selected to perform in the All-National Honor Band and Orchestra that is hosted by the National Association for Music Education. Louis Giacalone and Rachel Wu earned spots in the All-National Band and Orchestra through a competitive nation-wide audition process.

To end a successful first semester, various concerts were held in December including a Choir Concert consisting of Freshman Choir, Mixed Choir, and Concert Choir, and a Band Concert consisting of performances by the Parkway Jazz, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Clarinet Ensemble, and the Low Brass Ensemble.
