In Rehearsal for Spring Concert
 
After reluctantly cancelling our January 20 Mid-Winter Pops Concert
because of a blizzard, we're now rehearsing for our April 28 Spring Concert.
We'll include some of the music that was on the Pops program along
with classics for band.

 
The classics are both traditional and contemporary: Sibelius' inspring
Finlandia (1899), Frank Perkins' rousing Fandango (1952), and Julie Giroux's
charming Symphony of Fables (2006), five movements based on such
animal fables as "The Lion and the Mouse," "The Pied Piper of Hamelin,"
and "The Three Billy Goats Gruff."  

 
The rest of the program will be chosen from Broadway medleys
("Les Miserables," "Wicked," and "Jesus Christ Superstar"; plus film scores
(John Williams' March from "1941," the British-American animated
comedy "Chicken Run").


 
 
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 DecentralizationGrant, administered by the Chenango Arts Council.
