After 16 months of separation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maine Pops Concert Band will resume in-person rehearsals on July 1, 2021.  The band will rehearse every Thursday evening in July and August from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Falmouth Village Park in Falmouth, Maine.

The sessions are the start of the band's transition back from a virtual performance mode to an in-person concert band schedule. Maine Pops musicians are highly encouraged to take advantage of this nine-week outdoor period to download music, prepare individual instruments, and "work out the performance kinks" as it focuses on a return to indoor rehearsals in September.

Much has been done during the pandemic to keep the band's musicians active. The Maine Pops Concert Band  spent the spring of 2021 in virtual rehearsal, releasing five single performances between February and June.  The band also released a Christmas concert in December of 2020 and a conducted weekly online rehearsals to keep musical skills active.  Currently, the Maine Pops is rehearsing nearly 20 selections; compositions that will be rehearsed during nine-week summer session.
