Fans of L.A. nightlife can appreciate this year’s spring concert as its theme is L.A. After Dark.

This year’s spring concert will feature songs that reflect L.A. and Southern California. The music is planned to have a romantic influence on them as well. Some songs include “Summer Nights” from Grease and “Stay with Me” by Sam Smith.

Students will be able to watch the concert on May 2 during periods 2 and 3. On May 3, the show is scheduled to take place after school at 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room.

Decorations are expected to be influenced by notable things in L.A. such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame and skylines. Decor as well is to include scenes from the San Fernando Valley.

“Last year’s show was about stars and starry night, but this one is more diverse,” senior bass player Brayan Herrera said.

This year’s theme brings a more narrow spectrum of song choices to correspond with the desired mood from the choir and band. The band has also gained new members and are eager to present their skills to the audience. The choir plans to introduce new singers in the show too.

“We have more singers and this will be their first show,” junior Andionne Mendoza said. “We have people who have never performed with us before so that’s nice.”
