On Friday, November 11, the Air Force Band After Burner performed for both the Middle and the High Schools. With five of the six members playing, thirteen different songs were played. This was the third event in Humanities Week, and the first “concert” of the year.
Senior Hunter Coons performs a dance dare behind Assistant Vice Principal Paul Murphy while Band Director Joe Sokol approaches him from behind. To perform a dance dare is to dance behind someone’s back without that person knowing.
Several middle school students perform “The Worm” during a song. Typically, this move is mostly performed by middle school students.
Vice Principal Paul Murphy speaks with After Burner lead singer Shani Prewitt before the performance. This performance marks another event in Humanities Week, which takes place throughout the year.
