Old Musical Tradition to be Featured at Northeast Spring Concert

Old Musical Tradition to be Featured at Northeast Spring Concert

NORFOLK, Neb. – Eatnemen Vuelie is the name of a song inspired by the traditional Sami Yoik.

Yoik is an old vocal tradition among the Sami people of Scandinavia and Russia. Typical is the use of short melodic phrases that are repeated endlessly with small variations. Samis say it has no beginning and no end. It describes a specific person, emotion or other element of nature and does so with very little use of words.  

Eatnemen Vuelie will be performed by the Northeast Community College Concert Choir along with other selections by the Northeast College/Community Concert Band at the annual Spring Concert. 

The concert will be Sunday, April 21, at 2 p.m., in the Lifelong Learning Center on the Norfolk campus. The Spring Concert is free and open to the public.  

Vocal selections by the Concert Choir, directed by Margaret Schultz, vocal music instructor/director of choral activities, will be featured, including Eatnemen Vuelie. Linda Boullion is the accompanist for the Concert Choir.
