While the weather forced a cancellation on what was supposed to be the first night of performances this year, NHS band director Bob Medworth said attendance has been quite well.
"It has been wonderful," Medworth told The Brazil Times. "We lost a few with having to reschedule, and there's a lot going on at this time of year."
Still, NHS performing arts students welcomed guest artist Eric Scott Kincaid into the fold this year.
Kincaid spent a few years performing in Broadway's longest running show, "Cats," in addition to performing in the traveling show, "The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber," where he sang opposite international star Sarah Brightman.
"I feel like I've been living a dream since Wednesday," Medworth said of having worked with Kincaid. "We've had guest performers, but we've never had a fly-in from New York.
"He's so down to earth. He's a Broadway performer. Sometimes, those (performers) are not able to relate to a high school performance in rural Indiana. But if you didn't know better, you'd think he was part of the staff."
Medworth added the students had plenty of one-on-one interaction with Kincaid.
"They were able to speak with him on an intimate level," he said. "The kids love him."
