It wasn’t the Berkshires — just the Staples High School courtyard.
But several hundred music lovers packed picnic dinners, lugged lawn chairs, and enjoyed a (free) evening of a cappella, jazz and symphonic music, played by scores of talented Staples musicians, at tonight’s 1st-ever Outdoor Pops Concert.
The courtyard has lots of concrete. But there are plenty of plants too, and the atmosphere was warm in every sense of the word.
Kudos to Carrie Mascaro, Adele Valovich, Justin Miller and Nick Mariconda for using the space — and their students — so creatively.
