“The Wonderful World of Disney” Pops Concert Sept. 16

September 5, 2011

The Wonderful World of Disney comes to expression at Dordt College at the annual Pops Concert over Alumni Weekend. Dordt’s instrumental ensembles will perform music from beloved Disney films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Aladdin, The Lion King, Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Enchanted, and more.

The concert will be held in the B.J. Haan Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 16, starting at 7 p.m. The combined bands and Chamber Orchestra will perform under the direction of Bradley Miedema. Matt Wiersma, a senior computer systems major from Fort Collins, Colo., is the MC for the evening.

“Both the combined band and Chamber Orchestra are working hard to continue the tradition of creative craziness at our annual Pops Concert,” said Bradley Miedema. “Especially because we’re performing the music of Disney this year, I’m sure that everyone who attends the concert will hear something that they know and love.”

The performers will be dressed in their favorite Disney characters, and they invite and encourage the audience to come dressed as their favorites as well. This free concert promises to entertain people of all ages.

The Pops Concert takes place during Dordt College’s Alumni Weekend Friday and Saturday, Sept. 16 and 17. Other events include a Steve Green concert on Saturday and the Distinguished Alumni Banquet on Friday.
