PORTLAND – The Portland Symphony Pops will take audiences down memory lane with the “Sounds of the Sixties” at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13, at Merrill Auditorium. Liz Callaway will be guest vocalist for this performance of 1960s hits, including “Hair” and “Mary Poppins.” She is possibly best known as the voice of Anastasia in the Disney animated film “Anastasia” but also has extensive Broadway, TV and symphony experience.

“One of her solo recordings, ‘The Beat Goes On,’ features the music of the ’60s, making her a perfect fit for the Pops concert,” said Andrew Kipe, PSO director of artistic planning and operations.

“We were looking for something a little different from the jazz and Broadway standards that we’ve presented rather consistently in past Pops concerts. This concert will be filled with songs that audience members grew up with and I think they will really enjoy Liz’s special take on these classic songs,” he said.

Callaway will sing a variety of popular tunes, including “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” a medley of “The Beat Goes On/Feelin’ Groovy” and MacArthur Park’s “Didn’t We.”
