Every summer the hills that surround Burbank come alive with the sound of music. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills to the south sits one of the most iconic amphitheaters in the world, while to the east, the Verdugo Mountains provide a hillside home for Burbank’s own outdoor music venue.
Whether at the Hollywood Bowl or the Starlight Bowl, most Burbankers harbor fond memories of family picnicking, a romantic sharing of a bottle of wine, or an evening of rocking out with friends at one of those melodious mountain bowls.
This past Thursday, music left the mountains for the flats of Burbank. Early evening picnicking served as the prelude for the John Burroughs High School Instrumental Music Assn.’s “Live! At the Burroughs Bowl.”
