PHOENIX – John C Birdlebough High School Concert Chorus performed in costume at its Fall Choral Concert.
The concert theme was “Movie Music,” and the chorus sang songs from “Alice in Wonderland,” “Harry Potter” and “The Wizard of Oz.”
To further the fun and fantasy of the songs, each member of the chorus dressed up in costume as a character from a movie.
Costumes ranged from Thunderbirds from “Grease” to minions from “Despicable Me.”
“As we are singing through our songs today, let’s see if you can pick out some of these iconic figures,” said Director Brian Logee.
The Chamber Singers, comprised of 13 young women, also sang movie songs such as “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” from “Frozen.”
In an annual survey of districts nationwide by the National Association of Music Merchants, the Phoenix Central School District was one of 15 Central New York districts, among 375 contenders, to be named “2014 Best Communities for Music Education.”
