Family Pops Concert
Manchester Music Festival will be presenting a Pops Concert for families on Saturday, August 2, at the Southern Vermont Arts Center with a full orchestra under the baton of Ariel Rudiakov and guest artists Devin Johnson and Arthur Fredric.
The playlist will include highlights from the Harry Potter films, ‘Fiddle Faddle,’ by Arthur Fiedler and ‘Tap Dance Concerto Rondo’ by Morton Gould, a very different tap routine. Variations from ‘Pop goes the Weasel’ will entertain even the smallest of concertgoers, and the concert will close with a piece written to show off all facets of a full orchestra and explain its nature, ‘The Thrill of the Orchestra.’
Musicians and their instruments will be available for all to meet and examine following the concert. Tickets are available at mmfvt.org, 802-362-1956, and at a $5 discount at the Hills Alive ticket booth in front of Spiral Scoops.
