Burbank rival choirs join forces to raise money

June 9, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Two local championship choirs are joining forces this weekend to raise money to help support the arts in their city's schools.

Burbank High School's In Sync show choir and the Powerhouse show choir from John Burroughs High School headline the "All American Show Choir Super Show" at Burbank's Starlight Bowl Amphitheatre on Saturday night, with an added boost from Broadway star Susan Egan.

The real boost will be all the money raised to support visual and performing arts programs in all of Burbank's public schools.

"It's so awesome too, to be able to do this for arts education. It means so much to all of us, so to be able to help really, really makes me happy," said Kayla Tobey of John Burroughs High School.

"All this magic is going on, and we're working for kids that want to come into the programs next year," said Andreh Fiterz of Burbank High School.

When it comes to the weekend show, this is one time when the two choirs are in celebration instead of in competition.

"We've gotten really to know Burbank. They're not just our competition anymore. Now they've become our friends, and we've gotten to know them, and it's been such a great experience," Tobey said.

Actress Dot Jones of "Glee" will be hosting the show, and Entertainment Guru George Pennacchio will be her co-host. Tickets are still available. For more information, visit burbankartsforall.org .
