POPS swings into GHS on Feb. 2

Jan. 30, 2013—On Saturday, February 2, the Guilderland High School Music Department will present their annual POPS concert, “POPS Swings In,” beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the High School New Gym. This year’s event will feature performances by all of the high school music ensembles – over 350 talented students – in the Choirs, Bands, Orchestras and Jazz Band. In addition, small vocal and instrumental ensembles will also be performing as well.

For this concert, the High School New Gym is decorated and set with tables and chairs. Eighth-grade waiters and waitresses serve light refreshments that are available for purchase.

The POPS concert is the major fund raiser for the music booster organization, the Guilderland Music Parents and Friends Association (GMPFA). The GMPFA, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), uses all funds raised from the event to provide scholarships, enrichment activities, assembly programs, guest clinicians, and other resources for students of every age throughout the Guilderland school district.

Tickets are $6 pre-sale and $7 at the door, with table seats available on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are available for purchase in the school store at the high school, or contact Guilderland Music Supervisor Lori Hershenhart at 861-8591 ext. 1106 for tickets or additional information.
