Michigan Pops Orchestra
Chan says she enjoys introducing contemporary composers, pop culture, and musical theater along with the more traditional selections. One of her special guests this evening is singer Madison Micucci, a U-M musical theater senior, who appears on stage in a red gown to accompany the orchestra in "Defying Gravity" from Wicked.
I periodically glimpse my neighbor to gauge her reaction to the concert--yep, she's still smiling. And my daughter's been sitting at the edge of her seat the entire show, awaiting the next surprise. It's a win for all ages.
Chan promises more costumes, more videos, more special guests, more fun--and of course, more music--when Michigan Pops presents "Revolutionary Pops" April 14 at the Michigan Theater.
