Picnic Pops Concert
Series “Summers of Love” #3 of 4
Sunday August 27, 2017
5:00 – 7:00pm
corner of Park Avenue and Nimrod Street, Nevada City, CA
Fashions fade - but style is forever. The band has combed its library to bring everyone the brightest of highlights.
The Nevada County Concert Band once again opens shop at Pioneer Park in Nevada City to provide everyone a free musical makeover with BIG HAIR!, the third of four summer concerts celebrating the 50th anniversary of 1967’s Summer of Love.
There will be a brush though the 60’s with the medleys “Summer of 69” and music from the Broadway production of “Grease.” The original mop tops will be remembered with “Beatles Medley.”
Our resident mop top and winner of the 2017 Jerry Foote Scholarship Miles Mason will tease us with the big jazz band classic “Cute.” He will also reprise his role in “The Story Line of Carmen in Under 3 Minutes.”
For a more classic look, the lilting “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair” will show off our woodwind choir’s natural beauty, especially when joined by bells and harp. And the band will gleam while performing John Philip Sousa’s march “Our Flirtation.”
The impeccably groomed 007 will drop in for “Bond....James Bond.” And the sun will surely be let in to shine with music from the Broadway Musical “Hair,” and the kids will enjoy a musical clip from the movie "Tangled." For bit of Latin finesse, we will go south of the border with “Mexican Hat Dance” with guest dancers from Patria Insurgente.
And it is rumored there will be a roaming hairdresser to gussy up anyone who forgot to properly do up their tresses before leaving home for Pioneer Park. Remember, the higher the hair, the closer to heaven!
