Blue Man Group Performance

WOW! What a fantastic performance! Today the SPHS Bands & Percussion Ensembles were treated to a performance of the Blue Man Group at the Briar Street Theater. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. Record warmth at 80 degrees and it's still officially winter? They have updated the performance a bit since last we attended. Freshman Harrison Sterling got to be a part of the performance and did a great job.
