Pops Ensemble Rehearsal

The Pops Ensemble will be doing a recording session on Saturday, May 29 for LPME’s Spring Spectacular which will be a livestream event on Sunday, June 13. We’ll be meeting at VanderCook College of Music.

We will follow COVID safety guidelines based on what the VCM Symphonic Band has done as well as recommendations from the NFHS/CBDNA Performing Arts Aerosol Study. Based on the six-feet-apart set-up at VCM, we will have to cap the ensemble at 25 winds and brass players, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to join us! Once again, I am really looking forward to when we can meet as a full-size band, but I’m glad to have the chance to still make some music under the current conditions.

Is an all-gender restroom available? Yes
Is the location ADA-accessible? Yes
Is there a flat path from the street to the rehearsal or performance space? Yes
Will there be strobe lights or lasers? No
Will there be smoke machines? No
Will there be percussion beyond what one would typically expect for this type of event? (E.g. will there be pyrotechnics?) No
