Time: 2:00pm CDT September 19
Location: Hedberg Library Patio
Join us for Carthage’s Patio Pops Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 19, at the Hedberg Library Patio (rainsite A. F. Siebert Chapel).
Our annual concert will focus on pieces inspired by mechanical devices or images. Several selections by Leroy Anderson (“The Typewriter,” “The Syncopated Clock”) as well as the Raymond Scott “Powerhouse” used on numerous Warner Brothers cartoons will be performed.
The concert began in 2005 with an event paying tribute to John Philip Sousa at the Ralph J. Houghton Auditorium at Reuther High School and followed the next year with a program given at the Civil War Museum. The concert found its home as an outdoor event for the combined bands in 2009 with selections of film music. Since then, this event has explored baseball music, a variety of student soloists, recreating the College’s first band concert in 1873, twice saluting the World’s Fair of 1939, and has engaged former President F. Gregory Campbell to narrate children’s stories set to music.
