6th Annual PC Pops!

This year will be a challenge. Many of our group will be playing (in the pit orchestra or on the stage) for the Plain City Stake musical "The Wizard of Oz". That production will be staged at Fremont High School on September 7, 8, and 9, so practices for the PC Pops orchestra and the Wizard of Oz pit orchestra will overlap. We'll need all the help that we can get for both productions. I'm hoping that some of you can do "double-duty", preparing for and performing in both orchestras.

Here's what we have to do now:
  1. Line up our membership.  We hope 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 I want to be Part Of It page if you'd like us to contact you and answer questions.  Refer your musicians friends to this page, too, to get on our roll for updates and reminders.
  2. Set up a practice schedule.  Because I'll be running two orchestras this summer (the Wizard pit orchestra and the PC Pops), we'll need to decide how we can handle the schedule. Last year we did a week night and a Saturday morning. Would that still work this year.  Send me your thoughts at ayorgason@gmail.com. It's possible that we may eliminate the weeknight practice this year, too. Our first practice (and music hand-out) will be Saturday, June 10, at the Plain City Senior Center. That's the place where we practiced last year. After that, most of our other practices will be at the Plain City Stake Center. I'll soon have the specific information on the Calendar page.
  3. 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.
