Pops Night has been an annual tradition at Algonquin for I don’t know how long, and this year’s event was as entertaining as ever. The folks at the Northborough-Southborough Music Association, which sponsors the event, sent along this update:
Algonquin Regional High School held its annual POPS NIGHT on Wednesday, May 30th. The Algonquin gym had a full-house present to hear all 13 Algonquin music and choral ensembles: Concert and Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz I and II Bands, Orchestra, Algoncapella, Ladies First, Ninth Grade Chorale, A-Gents, Camerata, Chamber Singers, and the Concert Choir.
The music ranged from choral tributes to the 50’s and 80’s, to medley’s from The Wizard of Oz, In the Heights, and Oklahoma!. There were Pops-style arrangements of music from the Count Basie Big Band, Frank Sinatra repertoire, TV Series and even an orchestral version of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’.
Hundreds of students participated, performing under the direction of Algonquin’s music department teachers, Amy Collins, Eric Vincent, Kathrine Waters and Henry Morel.
POPS NIGHT is sponsored by the Northborough-Southborough Music Association. NSMA is a volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the talented music students, faculty, and programs, at Algonquin and the Middle Schools of Northborough and Southborough. Proceeds from POPS NIGHT go to these communities through grants, music enrichment awards, and senior scholarships.
