SPIRIT cannot be described in words… you know it when you see it…when it is there, you can feel it. It's SPIRIT that puts that extra something in the music. SPIRIT creates the show! It is SPIRIT that makes you want to work for the ensemble, to make sacrifices and give up some personal pleasures to be a part of the ensemble. It is SPIRIT that does away personal differences and makes pleasures to be a part of the ensemble. It is SPIRIT that makes an ensemble stand together, work together, and succeed together. It is SPIRIT that will make the difference in the Cape Coral High School Seahawk Music Department.
