Outdoor Pops Concert

The annual pops concert will look slightly different this year, with the band performing outside at Union Square Park at 5 p.m. on Friday.

The outdoor band concert will last approximately 30 minutes and will feature a variety of pop and movie music.

"Everyone is welcome; we just ask that those attending follow social distancing guidelines and bring their own seating," said Band Director Brian Kotila.

Band's List of Songs

"Queen on Stage"

"The Avengers"

 "Hallelujah"

"Baby Elephant Walk"

Indoor Concert Choir

At 6 p.m. Friday, the Belle Plaine High School Concert Choir and Chamber Singers will perform indoors, but the concert will not be open to the general public.

Each student will be allowed to invite two guests to the performance. Singers will be masked and distanced.

Choir Director Bri Bergstrom said program participants are looking forward to larger and more normal concerts next year.

“All of our songs kind of speak to 'finding light' and 'we rise' which are themes I thought would help us all mentally during this crazy school year,” said Bergstrom.

The Belle Plaine ninth and tenth grade choirs and the middle school choirs will share a virtual recorded concert at a later date.
