Photos: Playing Apart, a performance art piece featuring a ninety-piece marching band from Bear Creek playing individually downtown

This past Saturday, we were on hand to witness Playing Apart, the performance art piece featuring ninety students from Bear Creek High School's marching band playing Twisted Sister's "We're Not Going to Take It." The first city-commissioned performance art piece got varied reactions, from students being offered money and having stuff chucked at them to being ignored and/or gawked at and having bystanders singing along.
