Members of the John Burroughs High School’s Powerhouse, Sound Sensations, Sound Waves and Decibels, preformed “Burroughs On Broadway” Friday and Saturday evenings to capacity crowds. Members preformed to numbers from Mary Poppins, Chicago, Hairspray and In The Heights where students wowed the crowd and preformed to a technically stuffed show. The final performance will be on Sunday at 2:00pm and there are still tickets available. This event is one of the Burroughs Vocal Music Association’s major fundraisers for the year.

This past Saturday The Burbank High School’s VMA put on ‘The Burbank Blast Show Choir Competition’, with high schools from Arcadia, Carlsbad, Diamond Bar, Gladstone, Glendora, Hart, John Burroughs, Los Alamitos, and Serrano all taking part. The events for every choir started early Saturday morning, and the final competition took place well into the wee hours of midnight.
These show choirs are the best in the country, and everyone came away with awards in several categories. The Burroughs Powerhouse walked away with 2nd Place overall, with the top Choir from Los Alamitos. The host choir Burbank High’s InSync preformed their set but do to fairness did not compete.
Next week Burroughs puts on their Pop Show 32 ‘I Want It All’ Feb. 24 – 27, it’s well worth anybodies money to see these fine Burbank youth perform.
