When: Sat., Sept. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2014
The Boston Pops is probably the most notable pops-style orchestra in the world. On Saturday, Mary Woodmansee Green leads the North Charleston POPS! as they pay tribute to their Boston counterpart with songs influenced by conductors Arthur Fiedler and John Williams — yes, of Spielberg and Star Wars soundtrack fame. Concert-goers can expect to hear “The Imperial March” mixed in with Broadway and other movie hits. The Pops will have four soloists: Chris Fensom performing the famous cornet solo The Carnival of Venice; Michael Haldeman performing a slapstick version of Leroy Anderson’s The Typewriter; new concertmaster Gerome Stewart performing the main theme from Schindler’s List; and singer Lorna Roberts debuting the new jingle the POPS! has commissioned. It’s also the bicentennial of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” so come prepared to sing to our grand ol’ flag. The concert will also be the premiere of the POPS! Singers.
