And a little child shall lead them

Getting in the spirit of the holiday, 21st-century Burbank style.

Because bigger is better

The combined vocal and instrumental departments of John Burroughs High School are presenting the community a very special musical treat for the 2016 holiday season, “Holiday Spectacular, In The Studio”. It will be a performance filled with the seasonal sights and sounds of the award winning music departments of the school. The auditorium stage will be home to choirs: Powerhouse, Sound Sensations, Sound Waves, Decibelles, the Muses and the Vocal Ensemble along with the Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band and selected instrumental and vocal solos.

They will be performing a diverse selection of holiday music featuring classical lyrics to contemporary big band sounds, from Christmas to Chanukah to New Years’ reveling which will leave the audience filled with the holiday spirit. The first act will end with The IMA’s salute to the Trans Siberian Orchestra and the show’s finale will be Step Into Christmas by Elton John. Both classic songs created “in the studio” which have become staples in our holiday celebrations. The other highlights will be the numbers when the combined choirs and bands unite onstage, with over 300 students performing together! In keeping with the tradition of the choir, the performance will end with alumni invited up onstage to join in with their rendition of Silent Night, which features senior soloist Aubrianna Rohan.

Hope this school is paying the license fees. The other one didn’t — and mum’s the word now on their many legal entanglements, btw. Nobody’s talking.

This was our favorite line:

Due to the large amount of students performing, the seating is limited so order your tickets now…

We’re a long ways from Reg Hall country here, aren’t we? Or Mr. Rose, to be more precise. Slick, bloated, and sleazy is where it’s at now.

We prefer the Hugo Montenegro.

  1. I have three family members directly involved with this show. The JBHS IMA has properly licensed the songs. There are volunteers at Burroughs who try and do the right thing and get nothing but grief for it but luckily there are people at the district listening. Can’t comment on the licensing issue from last year at BHS but these are separate programs. I can get you a seat Semi- say the word.
