The Park City High School group is staying in a community about forty miles north of Boston, outside the area where police asked residents to stay home, Friday.
Principal Bob O'Connor says they are safe and in good spirits. But their sightseeing plans were altered.
Instead of visiting Boston Friday, the group visited Salem, Mass.
Their scheduled band competition, Saturday, is also well north of Boston -- and has not been cancelled.
The Utah group remains hopeful the manhunt -- for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect -- will be resolved in time for them to visit the city after their competition.
They are scheduled to remain in Mass. until Tuesday.
