Dear Friend of the Ocean City Pops,

In this eNewsletter, our second using new contact software, we highlight Bruch and the Brits and provide pictorial highlights from three recent events. We hope you were there for the excitement of these three performances and our other concerts.
David Kim
David Kim Returns
Peter Griffiths of the New York Times described David Kim's solos as "superb" and "gold on gold." 

The Ocean City Pops audience gets to hear his superb talent again this summer when he returns to play a romantic Bruch Concerto on August 2.

Mr. Kim has been concertmaster for the Philadelphia Orchestra since 1999 and appears as a soloist with the Orchestra each year and with orchestras around the world. To learn more about David Kim and his music, visit his Official Website. Then join us for an evening of outstanding music.

Bruch and the Brits, August 2, 8:00 p.m.
Edward Elgar
Who are the Brits?
In addition to David Kim, Sunday's concert features music by British composers Edward Elgar, Malcolm Arnold, John Rutter, and Eric Coates.

The orchestra will play Elgar's Wand of Youth which he first wrote as a child. Later when in his fifties, he returned to the tunes and created two charming suites. He labeled his suites opus 1 signifying that they should be regarded as new arrangements of his earliest surviving work. The suites are infrequently performed as a whole, but some of the pieces, notably Wild Bears, have secured a separate reputation as orchestral concert encores.

Rutter's Antique Suite for solo flute and orchestra features our own flutist, Pamela Whitman. The program also features Arnold's English Dances, Coates' Knightsbridge March, and Elgar's entire Pomp and Circumstance March. Rounding out the program is George Fredrich Handel's Water Music, originally composed for King George I for a concert on the River Thames.
Early Season Highlights
Pops performance photographer, Brian Ewing, shares a few moments from three events for you to enjoy.

Ailyn Perez and Stephen Costello surpassed all expectations with a magical performance of arias, duets, and scenes from operas.

Hello Dolly showed once again that  the Ocean City Pops and Ocean City Theatre Company combine for outstanding musicals.

Our Three Tenors I with Chrisopher Hux, Stephen Costello, and Joseph Demarist proved to be another blockbuster event.
