Band exhibition showcases students’ talent

November 2, 2017

Three local high school bands showed of their skills at the second annual Bands at the Beach exhibition at Cape Henlopen High School Oct. 21 in Lewes. Dozens of students from Cape Henlopen, Indian River and Sussex Central took to the football field to perform their 2017 halftime show. Each band was evaluated by Wesley College Band Director Jordan Kinsey, who offered constructive criticism and encouragement.

Cape’s band played rock songs from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, while Sussex Central’s musicians focused on songs from superhero movies, including Spider-Man. Indian River’s marching band’s performance was entitled “The Show,” and featured songs from Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Cirque du Soleil and Les Miserables. 

The event was a fundraiser for the Cape Henlopen High School Band Boosters.
