Racine Symphony playing Summer Pops program tonight


kenosha news staff

The Racine Symphony Orchestra is performing a Summer Pops Concert called “Pops Potpourri” tonight (Aug. 28) at Festival Hall, 5 Fifth St. in downtown Racine.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m..; the concert begins at 7 p.m.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase until the concert begins.

As the theme — “Pops Potpourri” — implies, the program will feature a variety of music.

The program includes Leroy Anderson’s “Belle of the Ball,” Stevie Wonder’s “Sounds,” James Horner’s “Somewhere Out There,” Bruce Chase’s “The Muppet Medley” and “A Tribute to Lerner and Loewe,” featuring favorites from the Broadway composing team.

The orchestra’s guest artist tonight is composer and guitarist Zachary Scot Johnson, a Racine native who now lives near Minneapolis.

He will perform several pieces with the orchestra, as well as performing a solo set.

To prepare for this concert Johnson wrote orchestral arrangements for some of his songs, writing parts for all of the orchestra’s instrumentation.

General admission and reserved table seats are available. General admission is $23 in advance and $25 at the door. All table seats must be purchased in advance. Reserved tables of eight and 10 are available for $260 and $325, respectively. Individual reserved table seats are $32.50. Students (age 20 and younger) receive free general admission. Tickets are available at www.racinesymphony.org or by calling 262-636-9285.
