From big band swing to the hits of today, music lovers will be Dancing Through the Decades when Macon Pops kicks off its inaugural season at the City Auditorium on Saturday.
We have 40 great musicians from all over, some from the Atlanta area and some from here, who were all pretty much handpicked. Its a very eclectic show and really showcases the diversity of the orchestra, which is neat, producer and drummer Steve Moretti said, adding that Macon Pops is his first time starting an orchestra from the ground up.
Some of the featured songs are In the Mood, Mambo Italiano, The Hustle, Hotel California and Love Shack, and Moretti said there will be plenty of surprises, too. Anita Hall, of Indiana, will sing, and she will be joined at times by Moretti and conductor and arranger Matt Catingub.
Weve created a model thats more of an event than a concert, with a dance floor and bar and tapas-style food, Moretti said. We want people to get up and dance and have a good time.
