selected to participate in the 2003 California All-State Honor Choir.

Daniel and Alex are from John Burroughs High School where they sing

in the Chamber Choir/Powerhouse and Vocal Ensemble choirs under the


direction of Mary Rago.

More than 1,800 high school students in the state auditioned and

only 300 choral singers were selected based on musical and vocal

skills. They learned a challenging repertoire for a recent


performance that took place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Daniel

and Alex were also selected to participate in the Southern California

Honor Choir earlier this year.

Burroughs Chamber Choir/Powerhouse placed first at all five local

show choir competitions this year, sweeping all top awards, including

musicianship and showmanship categories.
