Blair's Students for Global Responsibility (SGR) held their second SGR Spectacular this year on Friday, May 2 to benefit SGR related charities such as Feed the Streets.
The night's performances varied from music to dancing to poetry readings.
Junior Josh Scannell and junior Amina Baird's acoustic cover of the Beatle's "Something" pleasantly began the Spectacular. Baird lent her vocals later in the evening to senior Welch Canavan's set and again to InToneNation, who had a talented but lengthy performance that lived up to its excellent reputation.
The first act continued with strong acoustic guitar performances and amazing vocals from both solo and ensemble performances. Junior Josh Gottlieb-Miller added variety with two original poetry readings and sophomore Gabe Osborne's western-style piano performance brought a new sound to the night. Triple Threat livened things up between the singing acts with a well-choreographed and enthusiastically performed dance.
Intermission featured the return of the ever-popular SG-aRm wresting and a glow stick entertainment.
The night's most fantastic performance belonged to The Avenue, featuring Jake Herndon and Jessica Stamler (also of InToneNation). The powerful acoustic duo played Herndon's heart-breaking arrangements with Stamler's beautiful voice stealing the show.
The second half continued with senior Lisa Kim accompanying several bands and amazing the audience with her prodigal violin talent. The night continued with performances from Blair bands Strength in Numbers, Orange Julius, Narrative Life and Still Strong. Unfortunately, Blair band Trom was cut at the last minute due to time constraints.
Strength in Numbers shocked the crowd with singer Pete Musto's odd dress and Orange Julius and the Narrative Life each played enjoyable sets. Still Strong gave the show its spectacular finish though, getting the crowd involved with its loud hardcore metal.
