#TPB stands for Throwback Pops!
One of America's oldest community orchestras is bringing old-style pops programming on Friday, May 4, as Music at Sanctuary Hall concludes its seventh season with a performance by the Southeastern Philharmonic Orchestra.
The 55-piece ensemble, which was founded in Whitman in 1916 and rehearses at East Weymouth Congregational Church, will perform at 8 p.m.
Among the selections will be Haydn's Trumpet Concerto featuring soloist Timothy Maiuri of Duxbury; Humperdinck's "Evening Prayer and Pantomime" and Strauss's rousing "Radetsky March."
"'Throwback Pops' is typical of programs that late Arthur Fiedler would conduct with the Boston Pops," explained Victor DeRubeis, founder of the concert series. Fiedler conducted the Boston Pops from 1929 until his death in 1979 and was instrumental in bringing the orchestra to national prominence.
"This program is designed to accomplish two things --- provide nostalgia for those of a certain age and introduce these great pieces to a new generation," DeRubeis said.
Admission is only $15 for adults, $10 for those 62 and older, $5 for students with ID and $25 per family.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. for pay-what-you-can coffee and dessert. Music will start at 8.
