June 13, 2001 — The Charlotte Amalie High School piano lab student recital, held on Tuesday evening at the Ritz Carlton ballroom, was a lively affair. Fifty music students, of varying levels of accomplishment, under the direction of locally renowned piano player and CAHS music teacher John Cahill played a range of classics, show tunes, and folk songs.
A memorable portion of the evening were two rap songs "Hot Fyah" and "No Love" performed by Lenea Industrious and John Antoine.
Cahill commented that each generation is baffled by the music of the other and the C.A.H.S. music program is joining the 21st century by including this popular music in their performances.
Also included in the recital were two horn solos. Dion Van Holten performed a trumpet solo,"Prayer of Saint Gregory" by Alan Hovaness and Deshawn Hendricks played "Adante and Allegro" by Andre Chailleaux.
Detra Davis and Jevaun Jones, former C.A.H.S. students, now attending the University of the Virgin Islands added a vocal dimension to the evening. Davis sang "I Believe in You and Me" accompanied by Jones on piano.
