The Walhalla Performing Arts Center was host to Black Jacket Symphony November 14th and 15th.  Known for re-creating entire albums by classic rock & roll performers, the group presented Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album in concert to full crowds both nights.  A few weeks before the show, the director of the WPAC, Mark Thompson, presented our band directors with an opportunity for students to play along with the group on the song "Tusk."  The original version by Fleetwood Mac, released in 1979, was performed with the University of Southern California Trojan Marching Band.  Almost sixty students, representing all three high school marching bands, joined Black Jacket Symphony for the encore each night.
