KVNO Classical Kids!

View the Print Media Version online now to enjoy the complete "Magazine Experience."

Each month, KVNO honors the gift of the arts in our youth by recognizing an
outstanding student musician, or “Classical Kid.” A panel of local music
educators and KVNO staff members choose a youth whose musical efforts
exemplify the value and richness of the arts in a young person’s life.


April’s Classical Kid is Lukas McIlhaney who plays the piano and flute. A 13-year-old student at Wahoo Middle School, he fondly recalls practicing in an old art studio in downtown Wahoo. Lukas also likes to draw because it is challenging and expressive, like music. He enjoys KVNO because it is the only classical music station and plays a variety of composers from different eras. KVNO is grateful to the Soener Foundation, in honor of Mary Soener for their support of Classical Kids in 2010.


 JaeHyun Lim is KVNO’s Classical Kid for May and June. A 9-year-old student at Cavett Elementary School in Lincoln, he plays the violin and piano.JaeHyun was very impressed with George Winston’s piano concert, especially when Mr. Winston reached inside the piano and plucked the strings. He also likes to play baseball with his friends “because I like the crack of the bat and hard pitches to strike them out”. JaeHyun also enjoys reading because of all the adventure. He listens to KVNO for the classical music.
