Burroughs’ Pop Show 40 Aims High With “Change The World”

For the past 40 years, the annual Pop Show presented by John Burroughs High School choir students has been one of the most popular performances for the students and the Burbank community. Pop Show 40: Change The World is no different, showcasing some of the school’s best talent from solo and small groups to big performances by the several show choirs.

A cappella groups and the choir’s Dance Ensemble also perform. Students in Tech Crew class manage the stage and run the lights and sound for the shows.

The JBHS VMA presents four shows in total from Friday, February 22, through Sunday, February 24, in the school auditorium.

“It’s amazing that the Pop Show tradition has not only lasted, but grown and grown over the past 40 years,” commented Burroughs choir director Brendan Jennings.

“We are so grateful to all of the alumni, parents and community members that have built the legacy which my students now strive to build upon. The talent is jaw-dropping… I’m so excited for everyone to see the show!”
