The choirs from Cape Henlopen High School will be presenting their Choral Music Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 8. The concert is open to the public with free admission.
Cape has two choral groups under the direction of Louise Foster. The Cape Choir is an open choir with enrollment of about 50 men and women; and the Cape Chorale, the select choir, is composed of 24 mixed voices. The choir will be singing a variety of songs, including "Turning Tables" by Adele; "Mean" by Taylor Swift with Brittany Robinson and Allison Palmer as soloists; "Beautiful" by Jim Brickman, featuring Vicky Sanchez; and "Cover the World with Love," featuring sign language.
The chorale will perform "Skyfall" by Adele; "Let It Be Me"; "Theme from Ice Castles"; the American folk song "Shenandoah"; "Every Breath You Take" by Sting, which they will sing a cappella; and their signature song, "Viva la Vida" by Coldplay.
The Cape Chorale has won a variety of awards singing in competitions extending over the East Coast. In December 2012 they attended the Lenox, Mass., Carol Festival and Competition, bringing home second place after singing against college and adult choirs. They also attended the Inaugural Competition in Washington, D.C., winning a gold second-place award with only one choir from across the nation earning a higher score. Daniel Iammatteo, a tenor, won a special soloist award which is rarely presented.
The concert will be about one and a half hours in length and will feature a wide variety of songs both accompanied and a cappella.
