When a few of us put this together in 2012, I don't think we understood that we'd get this far. But it continues to be fun for those of us who play, and a pleasure for community and friends who gather in the park and listen.
Long live PC Pops!
We have several things to do before our first rehearsal:
- Line up our membership. We hop that many of you that have played with us in past years can arrange to join us again. And we always look forward to meeting new members who want to play some great music over a short summer season. Leave your name on the Musicians Needed page if you'd like us to contact you and answer questions.
- Make note of our practice schedule. Our practices will begin June 1, and continue on Wednesday nights (7:30 to 9:00) and Saturday mornings (10 a.m. to noon) until the performance on Monday, August 8. Note that there's one Saturday that the practice room isn't available (June 25), so that will be a day off for us all. See the calendar page for specifics.
- Come help us plan the program. A planning meeting is set for Thursday evening, May 5, at my house (Alan Yorgason, 4279 W 1400 North, Plain City, Utah. Here's a map.)
- Spread the word to friends and family. We'd like to include more players than ever before. We usually have trouble finding oboe, bassoon, French horns, tuba, enough percussionists. The more strings, the better, of course.
