ThunderRidge High School sent its Class of 2014, encompassing 413 students, out with a musically diverse send-off on May 22. Highlights came from a student group of six seniors, who rocked Sports Authority Stadium in Parker with a full-length version of Boston’s “Long Time,” and a choral arrangement of Fun’s “Some Nights” that featured multiple solos from members of the ThunderRidge Honor Chorale. Five students followed that with their rendition of Phil Collins’ “On My Way.” The ceremony also included performances from the ThunderRidge Wind Ensemble.
