Waukon Music Department to host its 15th Annual Pops Concert this Friday

The Music Department in the Waukon High School and Middle School will be hosting its 15th annual Pop’s Concert this Friday, February 23 at the Waukon Middle School gymnasium. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with concert time at 7 p.m.

The Pop’s Concert is an annual fundraising event sponsored by the Allamakee Music Boosters, and it features high energy musical numbers from the 1950s through today. Groups performing will include the Waukon High School and Middle School choirs, high school and middle school jazz bands, drumline, middle school rock band, featured soloists, song and dance skits, and emcees. The Pop’s Concert continues to feature new musical talents each year and has become a must-see event for the Waukon community.

The Pop’s Concert is open to the public for general admission seating in the bleachers and chairs located in the gym. No school activity passes or booster club passes will be accepted.

The money raised from this event has been allocated in the past by the Allamakee Music Boosters to help purchase items such as drumline equipment, risers, pianos, and various pieces of equipment for all grades, as well as provide scholarships for students to attend music camps. A Tastefully Simple Bakeless Bake Sale will be going on at the concert as well with numerous items offered. In case of inclement weather Friday, February 23, the back-up date for the Pop’s Concert performance has been set for Saturday, February 24 at 7 p.m.
