It was a magical mix — more than 160 talented young singers and musicians, a dedicated director, committed parents, supportive family members, friends and alumni and an eclectic mix of pop, rock and show tunes.
Those elements came together and it made for quite a night — as the Burbank High School's Vocal Music Assn. staged its 17th annual “Night of Magic” fundraiser at Pickwick Gardens this past week.
Beginning with a spectacular silent auction featuring more than 200 gift baskets, the event included dinner and a live auction conducted by auctioneer Bruce Osgood.
The evening's main event, hosted by rapper and actor Sean Holland, featured performances by the association's groups — In Sync, Impressions, Sound Dogs, Gentlemen's Octet, Sirens and Out Of the Blue.
Showcasing the talent of a show choir program that is considered to be one of the best in the country, last week's event saw the school's director of vocal music, Brett Carroll, take attendees on a musical journey that delivered every bit of the magic the evening promised.
