Burroughs singers to go 'wild'

Gary Moskowitz

Nearly 200 Burroughs High School music students will take the stage

this weekend for a string of "wild night" performances for the

public.

The school's Vocal Music Assn. will present its 25th Pop Show at 7

p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday in the

auditorium at Luther Burbank Middle School, 3700 W. Jeffries Ave.

Performances will be in Luther Burbank's auditorium because

Burroughs' auditorium is undergoing renovations.

This year's show is called "Pop Show 25: One Wild Night," named

for a popular song by the band Bon Jovi. All performances are open to

the public. Admission is $10, and seniors and students get in for $7.

Reserved seats for Friday and Saturday night are $15.

This year's show will feature about 175 students performing in

seven choirs, dance ensembles, quartets and as soloists.

"It's scattered all over the place, and very eclectic," said

Connie Trimble, co-president of Burroughs High School's Vocal Music

Assn. "The audience will see everything from hip-hop to jazz. It

really runs the gamut of the students' own tastes. Students love pop

music shows because they can do the songs that they want to do."

Students will perform a rap to Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham"

while wearing green foam costumes, and will perform a '40s swing

number called "Java Jive." Students will also sing songs by the Foo

Fighters, the Dixie Chicks, Christina Aguilera, and Simon and

Garfunkel, and freshman Agina Alvarez will perform an original song

called "Teenage Feelings."
