38th Annual Multiband Pops Concert
There will be performances by 15 Department of Music and Dance large and small wind, brass, jazz, orchestral, choral and dance ensembles.
The ensembles will perform from locations around the Concert Hall, leaving the audience to guess where the music will be coming from--the stage, the pit or the sides. The final note of the performance of one ensemble is followed immediately by the first note of the next ensemble’s music.
The Minuteman Marching Band presents a rousing performance each year at Multiband Pops. Enormous numbers of musicians fill the stage to capacity while a smaller contingent plays among the audience. Others participating ensembles will include the Chamber Choir, Chapel Jazz Ensemble, Horn Choir, Jazz Ensemble I, Mass Marimbas, Minuteman Marching Band, Percussion Ensemble, Saxophone Quartet, Symphony Band, Trumpet Ensemble, UMass Dancers, UMass Marimba Ensembles, University Orchestra, Vocal Jazz and Wind Ensemble.
