WCLU news had the pleasure of visiting BCHS on Friday and meeting a very talented group of young percussionists.  Seven students from Dr. Crowder’s percussion class, all armed with drum sticks and carrying a bar stool, walked to the middle of the gym and began their performance.  Chris Blakley, John McGhee, David Lancaster, Tristan Froedge, Yan Garza, Cortney Crain and Matt Ervin performed ‘Stool Pigeons’ and here is a clip:
