USM Concert Band: "Applause for Paws" Submit-Your-Pet Promotion!
As part of our performance of Julie Giroux's "Our Cast Aways," a work dedicated to rescued pets, we would like to incorporate a slide show with photos of all of our very own rescued furry friends! This slide show will be shown in the background as we perform "Our Cast Aways," and donations made at the concert will go to the Greater Portland Animal League.

We hope you'll join us on March 31 at 2pm in the McCormack PAC at Gorham High School for the performance, and can't wait to see your photos!

Photos must be submitted no later than 12pm on Sunday, March 24 to be guaranteed inclusion in the concert performance.

Other works to be featured at this concert:
- Mendelssohn, "Nocturno for Winds, Op. 24"
- Ives, "Circus Band"
- Maslanka, "Mother Earth"
- Shapiro, "Beneath" (featuring actual whale song accompaniment!)
- Gershwin, "Walking the Dog" (featuring USM Clarinet Professor Dr. Tom Parchman!)
- Giroux, "Our Cast Aways"
- Spittal, "Scherzo: Cat and Mouse"
