The combined vocal and instrumental departments of John Burroughs High School are presenting a very special musical treat for the holiday season. Holiday Spectacular 2010 is a performance filled with the seasonal sights and sounds of the school’s award-winning music departments.
The auditorium stage will be home to choirs: Powerhouse, Sound Sensations, Sound Waves, Decibelles and Vocal Ensemble along with the Concert Band, Big Band and selected instrumental and vocal solos. They will perform diverse selections of holiday music featuring classical lyrics to contemporary big band sounds, from Christmas to Chanukah to New Years. There will be vocal soloists performing with the Big Band and soloists with acoustic guitars. A guaranteed highlight will be the numbers when the combined choirs and bands unite onstage, with over 300 students performing together! The Vocal Music Association is under the direction of Brendan Jennings, and the Instrumental Music Association under the direction of Tana Barnett, both teachers at John Burroughs High School, who are proud to unite their students in this festive performance.
In keeping with choir tradition, the performance will end with alumni invited up onstage to join in with their rendition of Silent Night.
