2024-04-17 Maine Pops Concert Band Rehearsal at Camp Ketcha in Scarborough

April 17 found the Maine Pops Concert Band out at Scarborough's Camp Ketcha for its weekly rehearsal. With 10 days remaining before our April 27 spring concert, Camp Ketcha once again served as a back-up rehearsal site due to the Scarborough Schools spring break this week.

Our thanks to Kara Larochelle and the Camp Ketcha staff for hosting the band tonight.

Director David Watts went straight to work on "Victory at Sea," followed by "The Dam Busters." The band spent again spent a majority of the session on "Overture 1812" before closing with "Where Eagles Dare" and the "Battle Hymn of the Republic."

On April 24, the band will be back at Scarborough High School for the final rehearsal before concert Saturday - a 2:30 p.m. performance at Scarborough High School's Winslow Homer Center for the Arts. (All photos by Steve Barrett, Maine Pops Concert Band.)
