On Saturday, April 29, Westwood Choirs performed their final showcase of the year. This beloved tradition revolves around a different theme each year, with performers each contributing their own track to the “Playlist”. This year, they took the audience on a journey through the Y2K era, an iconic amalgam of synthetic music, statement fashion, and a generally nostalgic ambience. Consisting of two acts and a post-show, the show encapsulated the collaborative and celebratory nature of the choir’s ensemble.
