American Festival Pops Orchestra welcomes back its devoted fans and Mason alumni alike for a celebration of popular music of the 70's and 80's including the many eras of rock music, hit musicals, and memorable movie and TV themes. Enjoy your favorite tunes from such influential artists as Billy Joel, Michael Jackson and The Beatles as well as a rousing rendition of the Charlie Daniels Band's hit "Devil Went Down to Georgia" performed by Pops Concertmaster, Peter Wilson. Revisit Broadway's blockbuster numbers with selections from Chicago, A Chorus Line, and Grease, and don't miss some of film's greatest musical moments from James Bond to Rocky to John Williams' iconic theme from Star Wars. Conductor and Artistic Director Anthony Maiello leads this accomplished ensemble, and welcomes Mason's own Mike Nickens and "The Green Machine" for a special guest appearance. "[American Festival Pops Orchestra] performed crisply and with great enthusiasm under the baton of Maestro Maiello." (Washington Times)
