Join Maestro Joseph Place and the Prescott POPS for another season of fabulous orchestra performances, Sundays at 3:00pm in the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center!
September 10, 2017 – “Celtic Colors”
The Prescott POPS Symphony is pleased to bring you the lyrical sounds and hauntingly beautiful melodies from the Green Isles in “Celtic Colors.” The wonder of Celtic music is partly due to its variety, running the gamut from medieval carols, dances and folk songs, to Irish-American songs and ballads. The orchestra will dazzle you with the drama and exhilaration of Ronan Hardiman’s Lord of the Dance, the dynamic suite composed originally for Michael Flatley’s famous dance troupe. Victor Herbert’s masterpiece, Irish Rhapsody will charm you with its obvious Irish origins, variety and brilliant musicality. No concert devoted to Celtic music would be complete without Londonderry Air or Danny Boy, as most know it. This POPS program will excite, delight and thoroughly enchant you!
*Celtic music can be generally defined as the traditional music of the Celts who settled in Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, Galacia, Brittany, Nova Scotia, and the Isle of Man.
December 10, 2017 – “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!”
One very good reason the holidays are always so enjoyable is the music. Who doesn’t enjoy the wonder of traditional Christmas songs or the many holy testaments to the season? Maestro Joseph Place will lead the POPS through a fabulous performance of many seasonal favorites from Sleigh Ride and It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! to the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s “Messiah”, and the Festive Sounds of Hanukkah. Joining the POPS Symphony orchestra under the baton of Darrell Rowader, the POPS Chorus will surround you with beautiful vocals sure to touch your heart. Join the POPS Symphony and Chorus as they bring the season to life with their performance of another magical holiday concert!
February 18, 2018 – “Cartoon Tunes”
All of us started out in early childhood experiencing the marvel of Saturday morning’s best entertainment. Cartoons were vessels of laughter, joy, action, and adventure delivered through a fun package of colorful animated characters and wrapped in some of our most memorable music. Many famous cartoons dating back to the 1930’s brought their characters to life to the tune of classical music like Brahm’s Hungarian Dances (WB Looney Tunes “Pigs in a Polka” c. 1943), Bugs Bunny’s memorable performance of Rossini’s Barber of Seville Overture in “The Rabbit of Seville” (WB Looney Tunes c. 1946) and Elmer Fudd’s astonishing 1957 performance in WB’s “Kill The Wabbit” (Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries).
Maestro Joseph Place and the Prescott POPS Symphony will perform a marvelous program of toon tunes from the past that will make you smile…and the specifics are to be a surprise! So get your tickets and pretend you’re going to Corny-Gie Hall with Porky Pig and Bugs for the Corny Concerto…That’s All Folks!
