Los Alamitos High School Choirs made history on Saturday night at the Burroughs Music Showcase in Burbank, CA. For the first time ever in show choir history, all six of Los Al’s award-winning choirs placed first in their divisions at a single competition. Led by directors David Moellenkamp and Moana Dherlin, Los Al swept the awards over the course of the two day competition. Several students were also named Best Soloist in their divisions: Anthony Reed in the Advanced Men’s Division, Malia Rivers in the Advanced Women’s Division and Sophia Wackerman in the Advanced Mixed Tier I Division.
