Our MICDS Pops Concert is a high energy, fully choreographed concert accompanied by a professional stage band and featuring some of the best in pop music—both current charts as well as several throwback pieces. Students offered an enthusiastic audience a wide variety of pop hits combined with creative choreography and stage design.
Artists featured this year included Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon, Bruno Mars, Pink, DNCE and PORTUGAL, The Man. Throwback artists included Twisted Sister, Toto, Survivor, Whitney Houston and Billy Joel. Every generation in the audience found something to enjoy.
In between each song, students introduced the next choral group or performance. They usually included a joke or witty commentary, and it was evident every performer was having a blast.
Mr. Dana Self, Upper School Choral Director, took the stage at the end to introduce seniors, recognize achievements and thank supporters. Mr. Self also recognized the work of the Class of 2019 to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. A series of events held throughout the year raised over $13,000 for CMN. The MICDS Arts Backers hosted a reception in the Messing Gallery following the concert.
