Rehoboth Band to Debut in Concert
The Rehoboth Concert Band will have its premier performance on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Rehoboth Elementary School.
This new group of musicians, under the direction of Sharon Still—a retired high school band director—is a community band welcoming all area band instrumentalists at all levels of play and all ages.
The concert band was formed in mid September with 14 musicians at the first rehearsal and has since grown to over 50 musicians.
Among the band’s ranks are semi-professional musicians, school band directors and music teachers, college and high school students, a few middle school students recommended by their band directors, musicians who have been playing for a long time, and those who stopped playing but have picked up their instruments again to join this band.
The band plays classical music, marches, show tunes, and some novelty pieces.
Tickets for the concert are a $10 per person donation at the door—“more if you can, less if you can’t.” Funds go to support the band and Cape Henlopen Senior Center, where the band rehearses each Wednesday from 7-9 p.m.
Recruitment for band musicians continues, and any questions or interest should be emailed to Sharon Still.
