Happy Monday and Merry Christmas! I hope you are ready for it later this week. To help celebrate, I've posted our latest video here. Thanks again to everyone who participated in this great project and to our ensemble performers who braved the cold weather last Thursday during our Holiday around the Tree concert at Eastern Shore Center!

Happy Monday! Well, as you may have heard by now, the Christmas Concerts have been cancelled, however, we have an event scheduled for this Thursday, December 17th at the Eastern Shore Center (Malbis Mall). Here is the announcement from Anne Brooks...
"Because the Christmas Concerts were cancelled and they included small ensemble groups of Pops Members.....it was a shame for their hard work to not be recognized with a safe performance of some kind. We will have signs up around the circle that masks and social distancing around the band are both required. The marketing director at the Eastern Shore Center helped us with a place to play around the large Christmas tree in the center of the mall - see the map attached in your email which is also posted below - the tree is in the large center circle. This Thursday night - we will start at 6:00 with a Flute Trio, Clarinet Ensemble, French Horn Quartet, A Brass Choir and a Jazz Trio. It will be fun to play, even for yourself, and no audience but we will add a little bit of holiday cheer to the patio and passers-by. For the groups - We won't be in uniform or formal attire...whatever is comfortable for the weather that night. (It will be chilly). Folding chairs, music stands and stand lights will be provided for you so you don't have to bring anything other than your instruments and yourselves. In case of rain, we would have to cancel because there is not a covered area to move to. If there is a question on the weather
we will coordinate with the mall representative and make a decision by 3:00. Thanks and I hope you can come listen a bit to our modulated Christmas 2020 Concert.!!!"
Thanks again for your support this year, hope to see you soon. Merry Christmas! Kenny
