Chesco Pops Concert to Support Phoenixville Public Library

The Chesco Pops will perform at Phoenixville Area High School on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 3 p.m.

Titled From Basin Street to Broadway: A Tribute to America’s Musical Roots, the program features Sousa’s Semper Fidelis March, medleys from Ragtime, Chicago, 42nd Street and Louis Armstrong hits, circus music, blues, spirituals, Latin favorites and jazz selections performed by the Chesco Pops Dixieland Band.

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 40 concerts in more than a dozen county venues.

For the Winter 2012 Series, the Pops is partnering with local community nonprofits. Concertgoers will enjoy the show and also support the ongoing activities of Phoenixville Public Library. A percentage of 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.
