Chesco Pops Concert to Support Phoenixville Public Library

The Chesco Pops are partnering with the Phoenixville Public Library in its performance at Valley Forge Christian College in Phoenixville on Sunday, July 10 at 3 p.m.

Titled From Sea to Shining Sea: America’s Musical Bounty, the program features Salute to Broadway, Sousa’s Washington Post March, and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, featuring jazz and classical crossover pianist, Terry Klinefelter. Medleys of soundtracks written by John Williams for Harry Potter, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Raiders of the Lost Ark and by Henry Mancini for Peter Gunn and Pink Panther will also appear. A medley of 10 traditional American songs closes the program.

The Pops is under the direction of WCU Professor Emeritus, Jacques Voois. The 65-piece orchestra comprises many of Chester County’s finest instrumental players. Since its founding in 2005, the Pops has presented 36 concerts in more than a dozen county venues.

Concertgoers will enjoy the Pops show while supporting the ongoing activities of the Phoenixville Public Library. A percentage of concert ticket revenues will be donated to the Library.

Tickets will be available at the door. They are reasonably priced at $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $5 for students and free to children 12 and under.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
