Three generations of Disney music
by Dave Prentiss
The music of Disney has entertained American families for generations, from Snow White to Song of the South, from marching brooms to singing princesses.
The Tri-County Symphonic Band will celebrate that music at its annual Pops Concert on Sunday, June 17.
Song and scholarships
The Tri-County Symphonic Band is celebrating its 50th year of making music in the South Coast community. ... the group has provided tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships and grants for music education students.
This year’s Pops Concert is designed to be fun for the whole family. Children, parents and grandparents will all hear something familiar – the Disney music they grew up with. Music Director Phil Sanborn has put together a program that features music over three generations.
The concert will include the "Mickey Mouse March" (1955) and music from "Fantasia" (1940), "Song of the South" (1945), "Mary Poppins" (1964) "The Jungle Book" (1967), "The Little Mermaid" (1989), "Beauty and the Beast" (1991), "The Lion King" (1994) and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003).
The idea for the concert developed as a special way to celebrate the Symphonic Band’s 50th anniversary. “We wanted to do something that would really bring families together,” states Hannah Moore, the organization’s president. “That’s what this group has been doing for 50 years.”
The concert takes place under the Grand Tent overlooking Sippican Harbor, adjacent to the Fireman Performing Arts Center at Tabor Academy, 235 Front Street, Marion.
The social hour and silent auction begins at 2pm and the concert begins at 3. The family-friendly pricing is $25 for adults, $10 for children over 5 years old, and children 5 and under can attend for free.
