Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Concert March 8th

John Varineau, Conductor

If you were waiting for the opportune moment to spend time with the Grand Rapids Pops, this is it. The comical adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swan and Captain Barbossa come to the silver screen with the epic swashbuckling score to accompany the 2003 film starring Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly. This is the day you will always remember as the day you enjoyed Captain Jack Sparrow and the Grand Rapids Pops. Savvy?
