Hamden middle school is in for a treat with Trumpeter and vocalists Byron Stripling jumping off his New Haven Symphony Orchestra debut with a tribute to the late great Louis Armstrong. 

Stripling is joining hands with conductor Chelsea Tipton as a part of the Professional Opportunities Program for Students or POPS.  POPS is the brainchild of former Florida State Senator Gary Siplin as a response to the lack of structured summer activities for high school youth in low income areas in his district, but has since been replicated nationally. 

Chelsea Tipton II is the New Haven Symphony Orchestra’s new principal POPS conductor.

The show will be held on Saturday, 03, June at the Hamden Middle School at   Dixwell Ave, Hamden, CT  06518.  Ticket prices are $35-49, kids get in free with an adult, college students $10.

Striplings tribute to Armstrong is described as an electrifying and heartfelt.  Expect to hear his version of “When the Saints go Marchin’In”, “Sweet Georgia Brown,” and “Ain’t Misbehavin” among others. 

The who will start at 2:30 p.m. and expected to go on for two hours.  For more information, call the NHSO box office at 203-865-0831, Ext. 20 or visit newhavensymphony.org.
