43rd Annual Multiband Pops Concert

43rd Annual Multiband Pops Concert

Fifteen different music and dance ensembles will perform in rapid succession during a musical extravaganza that will take your breath away on October 20.

Jeffrey W. Holmes, professor and director of jazz and African-American music studies, produces and choreographs the flow of performances, which take place from an array of locations around the Hall. A highlight is the rousing performance by the Minuteman Marching Band, comprising nearly the entire second half of the evening event. Music will also be presented by the UMass Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble I, Chamber Choir, University Dancers, UMass Amherst Symphony Orchestra, Percussion Ensemble, Symphony Band, Chapel Jazz Ensemble, Vocal Jazz Ensemble, UMASS Marimbas, Trumpet Ensemble, Trombone Choir, Horn Choir, and Sax Quartet.

Each year, the Pops Concert attracts a sell-out audience that includes students, parents, faculty, administrators, alumni, community members, and families from around New England and the United States. This event is presented by the UMass Amherst Department of Music & Dance.

    Do you need to be a student at UMASS for the student rate or is it in general a student studying?
