Phoenix student musicians delight crowd during spring concert


Songs filled the air in the John C. Birdlebough High School auditorium recently as the spring choral concert took center stage.

The Firebird Concert Chorus performed seven songs, with the final number, “The Argument,” bringing the audience to its feet.

Divided between male singers and females, the vocalists sang about the dynamic between the genders and the sources of contention that arise.

The back-and-forth battle was a favorite among the students, according to director Brian Logee.

“They’ve been working on this for a while and they couldn’t wait to perform it for all of you,” Logee said after the thunderous applause.

In addition to the concert chorus, the chamber singers also belted out seven songs ranging from “Chili Con Carne” to “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.”
