Bradley Central High School’s very own ‘Quadrant D’ Rockband along with ‘VocalMotion’ show choir performed on stage with the multi-platinum group Foreigner. The concert took place at the historic Tivoli theatre in downtown Chattanooga on Tuesday, March 1.
Quadrant D and VocalMotion were selected after entering a contest through KZ106, a local classic
rock radio station. The online contest featured information and videos of high school music groups from all across the Tennessee Valley. As the winner, the BCHS groups were afforded the opportunity of a lifetime to sing “I Want to Know What Love Is” with Foreigner as well as receive a gift of $500. In addition to the amazing performance, the entire concert was recorded for a downloadable audio album through StereoCast, a new phone app.
A few of the students brought original Foreigner album covers for the band to sign which they did as well as autograph a guitar brought by sophomore lead guitarist Blaze Montgomery. VocalMotion Senior, Ryan Loomis won an autographed Les Paul guitar being given away after the concert. WRCB-TV3 News and News Channel 9 provided before and after news stories including interviews by several students.
The entire event was extremely exciting for the students as well as for the chaperones that recorded video and took photos all evening. A video documentary of the evening may be viewed online at BCHS.rocks Quadrant D’s website.
Quadrant D Rockband is directed by BCHS CTE Broadcasting Instructor Gwen Shroyer. Please visit, www.BCHS.rocks the Rockband website for more information.
