In a cabaret-style setting inside the John C. Birdlebough High School cafeteria, students sang, played instruments and entertained a large crowd.

While the audience was listening to musical delights, they were also able to enjoy confectionery delights as student volunteers served desserts to attendees.

“This is a fun night where our musicians can showcase their skills in a different setting,” said JCB band teacher Dave Frateschi. “They are student performers who are really playing some complex pieces.”

The musical selections ranged from classics to current chart-toppers.

Songs such as “Black Swan,” “Wrecking Ball,” Chaminade’s “Concertino,” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” were just a few of the diverse numbers that were performed.

Wyatt Parker and Ben Bulgrien perform their version of “Wrecking Ball” as part of a recent evening of music at Birdlebough High School.
