Gainesville Pops to Celebrate Armed Forces in Dowling Park
Last Spring, the Gainesville Pops (Gainesville, Florida) or “GPops” came to Dowling Park and played a well-received armed forces salute concert. The event was so well liked, the GPops performed again at ACV at Christmastime. ACV is pleased to announce that the GPops are returning for a third concert in Dowling Park — a 3:00 matinee armed forces salute — on Saturday, May 27.
Founded in 2008 and modeled after the Boston Pops Orchestra, the Gainesville Pops presents a similar program using traditional concert band instrumentation with a twist: They also feature piano, keyboard, string bass, and occasional vocals. The GPops feature a variety of music, including light classical, Broadway show tunes, Hollywood soundtracks, popular hits, and jazz standards. The ensemble includes both students and professionals from the Gainesville area.
Make plans to attend the Gainesville Pops’s armed forces salute concert at Advent Christian Village on May 27. It all begins at 3:00 in The Village Church. Admission is free, but a $5.00 donation is requested to offset costs. Call (386) 658-5557 for more information.
