Pops rehearsal. Marshfield HS Auditorium, Coos Bay
Free with advanced registration

Coos Community Cultural Commission

We partner OCMA Festival Orchestra musicians and Associate Conductor, Adam Stern. The opportunity is tailored around our Festival Pops program that will feature music by, about and for children (including Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”, narrated by Maestro James Paul).

Interested youth, ages 10 and up are invited to participate in the workshop and learn of the festival history and goals. The students and their chaperones will attend the rehearsal of the Pops Concert and observe how the Orchestra prepares for the concert. Following the rehearsal, OCMA staff will host a luncheon for the students, their chaperones and selected orchestra members. During this luncheon the participating students will have the opportunity to examine and discuss the selected orchestra members’ instruments and learn of their personal stories and passions for music. The group will be provided complimentary tickets to attend the evening concert in a special reserved section.
