2024-06-29 Maine Pops Performs at 2024 R.B. Hall Festival in Bridgton, ME

The first summer performance of 2024 for the Maine Pops Concert Band occurred this morning at the annual Robert Browne Hall (R.B. Hall) festival on June 29. The event was held at Stevens Brook Elementary School in Bridgton and hosted by the Bridgton Community Band.

The Maine Pops took the "stage" at 11 a.m. and performed a series of compositions taken mostly from the band's spring concert held last April. Our 45-minute performance included:

Where Eagles Dare
The Rolling Stones on Tour (medley)
633 Squadron
Battle Hymn of the Republic
The Dam Busters
Veni, Vidi Vici

Once the Maine Pops concluded their performance, many remained in place and were joined by musicians from the other community bands for a performance of R.B. Hall marches conducted by Dennis Harrington.

Eleven community bands participated in the event, held traditionally on the final Saturday of June - a day designated annually as Robert Browne Hall Day in the State of Maine.
