The Western Carolina University School of Music will present a family-friendly “pops” concert featuring musical selections from the Broadway stage and the Hollywood screen at 7:30 p.m., March 29.
The free performance, held in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center, is part of a week of festivities surrounding the installation of WCU’s new chancellor.
The concert will showcase the WCU Symphony Band, conducted by David Starnes, and the Wind Ensemble, conducted by John T. West.
The concert will include music from “Pirates of the Caribbean,” the original “Star Wars Trilogy,” and “The Phantom of the Opera,” among others.
Music will be an integral part of events for the installation of David O. Belcher as chancellor of Western Carolina; Belcher is a classically trained concert pianist.
No state funds are being used for installation activities, which are paid for through private and corporate contributions.
