BURBANK -- What happens when people of varying ages, backgrounds, careers and ethnicities join together in song? The answer from one experienced professional is simple. "Magic happens!" says Frank Basile, director of the Burbank Chorale since 1973. In its all-classical concert Saturday at the First Christian Church in Burbank, the chorale will produce yet another kind of magic. After the 60-member chorus is heard on Bach Contata No. 196, 16 talents from the group will debut as the Burbank Chorale Master Singers, performing a cantata by Bach's mentor Buxtehude, a selection of madrigals by Monteverdi and Johannes Brahms' Motet.
