Algonquin’s annual Pops Night concert is the end of year concert. For seniors, it’s the their final NSBORO performance. Given that the annual event had a two year hiatus, next week’s concert is especially celebratory.

The big return is a week from tonight.

The concert features every instrumental and vocal ensemble in the school. For the occasion, the ARHS gym is transformed into a “Boston Pops” style venue with seating for several hundreds of guests, including reserved round tables on the floor.

It’s a bit more light and colorful than the school’s usual formal black and white affairs:

The musical selections are also different from a typical school concert. Pops Night features music from movie soundtracks, musical theater, and pop tunes ranging from rock to jazz.

The deadline to purchase a tray of goodies for the table is today, May 25th. (Sorry for the short notice!)* 

In addition to offering a good time, the event raises funds for 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.

NSMA is always looking for helping hands to make this night happen. You can volunteer here.
