STEVENSVILLE Kent Island High School Band shared the spotlight with members of the school’s choir and the Kent Island Methodist Church Handbell Choir at its Winter Concert on Dec. 15.

The band’s first concert of the year included an array of patriotic and holiday music performed by the full band and percussion ensemble, and featured choral solos and a special performance by the Kent Island Methodist Church Handbell Choir.

The concert began with the national anthem followed by “Maryland, my Maryland” featuring a vocal solo by choir member Chloe Lawler. During “Salute to America’s Finest,” the band honored military members by playing the song from each branch while corresponding audience members stood.

Robert Hartnet, Shelby Hope, Kristopher Kolb, Sampson Shackleford, Alyssa Walzak and Kristen Zell performed the marching band cadence and marched up the aisles of the auditorium for the big finish. Later, they performed music from the “Nutcracker Suite” and “Silent Night” on xylophone.

Band Director Luke Whitehair joined three members of the brass section to play Bach’s “O Jesu So Sweet.” The quartet of Zachary Herron and Kevin Jubera on trumpet and Jack Thompson and Luke Whitehair on trombone accompanied a vocal duet by choir members Kassidy Korb and Iris Spik. The same brass quartet played at the school’s choral concert on Dec. 7 but with the full choir of over 150 performing the vocals.

Kent Island United Methodist Church Handbell Choir, directed by Tom Reed, provided a short diversion with four traditional Christmas numbers played all with Handbells. During the concert,

Reed was thanked for numerous hours of assistance to Whitehair in his first semester as the school’s band director.

The highlight of the concert was the 60 some member band performing “Coventry Carol” by Jerry Brubaker. The arrangement featured every section of the band individually and included instrumental harmonies highlighting the hard work of the group so far this year.
