Come celebrate the holidays with the Chester County Pops Orchestra, State Representative Chris Ross and the Chester County Food Bank! The Chesco Pops will present its second annual public holiday concert at Unionville High School, 750 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, on Friday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. (inclement weather date is Dec. 19, 7 p.m., same location). This year’s “Holiday Pops,” conducted by Joseph Gehring, will feature a wide array of your favorite holiday fanfare, as well as the talents of Unionville High School Chorale and Jazz Band, conducted by Jason Throne.
Representative Ross will present to the Chester County Food Bank a check for the total of Food Bank contributions raised among members of the Chesco Pops and its Board who have, to date, contributed $500 toward a goal of $1,000. Each concert patron is encouraged to bring a canned good for the Food Bank or to make a cash donation, to be collected at the door.
“The Chesco Pops concludes another wonderful concert season with this holiday celebration,” said Maestro Gehring. “We are excited to welcome Representative Ross and the Chester County Food Bank, and to perform this festive concert for attendees of all ages, when we will also be joined by the season’s favorite character.”
Sixty-five of Chester County’s finest instrumental players are brought together for every concert, under the direction of Maestro Gehring. Since its founding in 2005, the Orchestra has performed more than 50 concerts at more than 20 venues in the County. The Chesco Pops has been celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, and held a celebration Gala and Fundraiser in September.
This performance is sponsored in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency). Also, the Chesco Pops is partnering with the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District for revenue sharing. For the price of a ticket, a concertgoer will enjoy another fabulous Chesco Pops performance, and also support the school district’s educational programs and activities.
