BRATTLEBORO—Father’s Day takes on a decidedly musical bent this year, as the Windham Orchestra presents “POPS for Pops,” a family-friendly music fair Sunday, June 17.
All are welcome to the event, held from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Brattleboro Music Center, which will include a range of special events and refreshments.
One highlight will be a 5 p.m. concert featuring the Windham Orchestra accompanied by BMC student violinists ranging in age from toddlers to senior citizens.
An instrument “petting zoo” will introduce visitors young and old to various musical instruments, a performance by three trumpeters of Anderson’s “Bugler’s Holiday” will get toes tapping, and a Dixieland band will keep the atmosphere festive.
An auction will also offer the chance to guest-conduct the orchestra and compete for a non-singing role in the Orchestra’s fall performance of Puccini’s Turandot.
