Hello all and happy Sunday evening! We're just a week away from the July 4th concert in Fairhope and this Tuesday night (7-9 p.m.) is the final rehearsal so please make every effort to be there. We will be going through the entire concert lineup, so practice those parts.
The concert site as you may know is Henry George Park at the bluff in Fairhope which overlooks the Fairhope Pier. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Traditionally, we ask that you plan to arrive in plenty of time so everyone can be seated at least an hour prior to allow for warmups. Dr. Rinehart will clarify that schedule this week.
I've had questions about parking. Ideally, I would love to be able to provide a shuttle service, but we ask that those who can, meet up at a central location and carpool down to the park. There is parking all along Fairhope Avenue and up towards the downtown area. In Fairhope, the earlier the better!
For those who are new to the Baldwin Pops, we provide clip-on stand lights and plexiglass. There will also be cold bottled water available. You might want to bring a towel to wipe off your chair in case of rain earlier in the day, but we're hoping for a dryer forecast. Thanks again for your support of the Baldwin Pops, I look forward to hearing you!
