The Philly Pops
Beethoven, Big Band and Broadway
Philadelphia’s accomplished and versatile orchestra features upbeat programs for music lovers. Demonstrating formidable breadth and skill, the musicians are equally at home performing classical, Broadway, rock and jazz works. Seasonal highlights include eclectic performances with such titles as Latin Fiesta, Pop Opera, Jump n’ Jive and Broadway Showstoppers.
The Philly Pops is known for its adventurous combinations, so don’t be surprised if you hear selections from the disco musical The Wiz juxtaposed with Beethoven’s Ninth symphony. Drawing from diverse musical genres in suave arrangements, Nero proves that sophisticated orchestration and popular tunes can happily coexist.
Produced by the nonprofit organization Encore Series, Inc., the Philly Pops has been energizing audiences since 1979. The Pops has performed for many special events including an annual free concert during Philadelphia’s July 4th celebration, on television for We the People, to celebrate the signing of the Constitution, and at New York City’s Carnegie Hall to enthusiastic audiences.
