Alas, Pops Concert Cancelled Due to Serious Storm Threat
 

Forecasters everywhere are telling us that we'll have up to two feet of snow by the time of the concert we scheduled for 2 p.m. on January 20.  So for the first time in our history, we've decided to cancel a concert for the safety of our audience and musicians, some of whom travel many miles to be with us.
 
We'll add some of the following outstanding popular selections to our Apil 28 concert, which will include as well Leonard Bernstein's witty Divertimento, transcribed for band, and Julie Giroux's charming Symphony of Fables, written for band:
 

FROM BROADWAY
Medleys from:  "Les Miserables," "Wicked," and "Jesus Christ Superstar";  "Gee, Officer Krupe" from "West Side Story."

FROM FILM
John Williams' powerful March from "1941" and tunes from the British-American animated comedy, "Chicken Run" (featuring kazoos!).

LIGHT CLASSICS

Sibelius' Finlandia, Gliere's Russian Sailors' Dance, Johann Strauss II's ever popular Blue Danube Waltz.


The April concert will be free and open to the public with donations gratefully accepted.  No tickets required; seating on a first-come, first-served basis.  The performance will be made possible by generous support from the Dewar and Future for Oneonta Foundations, and a New York State Councl on the Arts Decentralization Grant, administered by the Chenango Arts Council.
