Who doesn’t love a good laugh? SSO's Extremely Silly Pops Concert features themes from cartoon favorites like The Flintstones and Looney Tunes, goofy pieces like Leroy Anderson’s The Typewriter, where the soloist plays (you guessed it!) a typewriter, and you'll even hear a concert version of Chopsticks. They welcome Springfield radio legends Ned Reynolds and Randy Stewart to the stage for Beethoven 5 Sportscast by the hilarious P.D.Q. Bach (a k a Peter Schikele).
