POPS Concert To Be Performed May 30, 2019

ConVal’s annual POPS Concert will be performed on Thursday, May 30, 2019, starting at 6:30 pm in the gymnasium.

The POPS Concert in May is one of the biggest fundraisers for ConVal Music each year.  It features performances by all the instrumental and choral ensembles and tickets are available for ballroom table-style seating near the performers as well as bleacher seating.  Table seating includes refreshments (fruit, baked goods, water) while baked goods are also sold at the concession area.  Baskets of donated goodies are raffled off, and program ads are sold to generate revenue for the music department. 

The students, under the joint direction of Krystal Morin and Jim Wickham, have prepared a program with diverse musical selections following a Nautical theme.  Selections will include “The Navy Hymn (Eternal Father)”, “With Wind and Water” by Brant Karrick, “Take Me To the Water” by Rollo Dillworth, “The Sounding Sea” by Eric William Barnum, “O Waly, Waly” by Jay Bocook Plus, and “Surfin USA” by the Beach Boys. Plus, music from Pirates of the Carribean and Once on This Island, amongst other selections. 

The following choral ensembles will perform: Chamber Choir, The Clef Hangers (girls a cappella), The Morin Tune (boys a cappella), Select Choir, and Concert Choir.  Instrumental pieces will be performed by the Symphonic Band, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Concert Band. The concert will conclude with a Combined Ensemble performance of Bobby Darin’s “Beyond the Sea.” 

Admission is $5 for a bleacher seat. Limited table seating is still available ($10.00 a seat). Please contact Jim Wickham at jwickham@conval.edu to inquire about purchasing a table seat.

We hope to see you at the concert!
