An evening with the Richmond Pops Band

The Richmond Pops Band

The Richmond Pops Band will present their annual June concert in the Altria Theater Sunday evening, June 25th at 6:30PM. The performance will feature two guest soloists, soprano Lisa Edwards Burrs and clarinetist Charles West. The band will also perform a new work by one of their members, clarinetist Rob Blankenship, and trumpeter Jack Price will be featured as a soloist.

VPM's own John Porter (host of John's Porch and co-host of Time for the Blues) will be the announcer for the show, and I'll be making a special guest appearance. I spoke with conductor Earl Shaffer on this week's edition of my "Wind Ensemble Wednesday" hour, and he gave us a preview of the evening's festivities.

Yours in good music,
Mike Goldberg
Classical Host, VPM Music
