Faith & Spirituality Capital Ringers handbell ensemble to perform May 6 Capital Ringers community handbell ensemble will present its spring show, “Bach to Rock!” at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, May 6, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes.  Imagine an instrument so com- plicated that 30 hands are needed to play it. This community English hand- bell ensemble entertains and educates with an extensive rep- ertoire of rock ‘n’ roll, patriotic, sacred and current top 40 tunes, performing on the largest set of handbells on the Delmarva Peninsula.  Founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Linda Simms, Capital Ringers’ mission is to provide performances that demonstrate the artistic diversity of English handbells. The show will include arrange- ments from the Baroque period to today with favorites like “Clair de Lune,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “Boo- gie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Rock Around the Clock,” and many more. Featuring the largest set of handbells (134) and handchimes (66) on the Delmarva Penin- sula, the advanced group is always looking for new ring- ers, non-ringing volunteers and professional help to produce the shows. Cape Gazette FRIDAY, APRIL 28 - MONDAY, MAY 1, 2017 81 Delaware Teen Idol auditions promote a positive message Sussex County teens ages 13-18 may audition for the Delaware Teen Idol competition sponsored by AIDS Delaware from 1 to 3 p.m., Sunday, May 7, at St. Peter's Episcopal Church parish hall. Individuals and groups must per- form an original song, rap, dance, or poetry addressing safe sex, fa- therhood involvement, anti-drug use, anti-violence, or anti-crime. This is a wonderful oppor- tunity for youth to express themselves and their creative talents while promoting positive messages to other youth. Final- ists will have the opportunity to compete in the Delaware Teen Idol state competition in Wilm- ington for a chance to win cash and cool prizes. Delaware Teen Idol is a project that was created out of a need for youth to have an outlet to voice their concerns regarding some of the issues taking place in Delaware. Since its beginning in 2005, the program has become signifi- cant for the City of Wilmington. Youth consistently need to hear and see messages about safer sex, abstinence and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. The issue is prevalent throughout the state, and organizers are now trying to spread the word in all counties. The program consist of youth singers, rappers, and poets dis- playing their talents in one of the seven Wilmington Health Plan- ning Councils prioritized health initiatives (Healthy Wilming- ton 2010): Access to Preventive Health Care, Chronic Disease Prevention: Early Detection, HIV/AIDS, Mental Health, Re- sponsible Sexual Behavior: Teen Pregnancy Prevention, Substance Abuse, and Violence Prevention.  With this peer-to-peer approach, youth will be given educational messages that will challenge them toward behavior change.
