The Valentine’s Day weekend was ushered in on a musical and theatrical note as the John Burroughs High School Instrumental Music Assn. and the Burbank Senior Arts Company Theatre staged respective performances Friday evening.
The Holiday Inn Burbank Media Center served as the venue for the Burroughs Instrumental Music Assn.’s “Second Annual Swing Night” benefit concert. Friends, family and supporters were treated to a selection of popular tunes arranged for big band, and performed by the school’s Jazz Ensemble, which benefited by performing in a professional setting with an interactive audience.
Under the direction of Tana Barnett, who serves as the school’s director of instrumental music, Friday’s performers included Brad and Aaron Sandoval, Anais Hayes, Brandon Olivas, Meaghan Ryan, Colin Valenzuela-Seaver, William Miniear, Josh Bailey, Mitchell Lynn, Andy Ordonez, Jeremy Asuncion, Connor Maddern, Evan Jung, Harry Levin, Nick Stratton, Shannon Cain, Jordan Curcuruto and Brandon Combs.
