On Saturday, May 12, over 100 young people inundated the Chester corps for the PENDEL Divisional Star Search Play-Off! The morning was filled with glorious music from well-prepared soloists in brass, vocal and piano, as well as Youth Bands, Singing Companies and a Youth Chorus. The Arts were also well represented with Sacred Dance solos and groups, drama monologues and a drama troupe! We also had the Timbrels with their wonderful artistry and precision! The awards ceremony was a moving experience as the winners came forward to be recognized and some were chosen to present their test piece.

Pendel’s MAP program and the evaluation process was the first step in the selection process of selecting the list of participants for the divisional play-off. This year we had representatives from 11 corps with 57 displays including three corps who had not participated in Star Search in many years.
