Playing with the Pops is fun.

Our musicians come from surrounding communities, are of intermediate to advanced levels of musicianship, and embrace the opportunity to perform as an ensemble.  The orchestra is a diverse group that includes young adults who may be looking for opportunities to play together after high school and college, as well as those who have returned to the joys of playing and performing after the busy years of family and work obligations.  We are always seeking new talent, and have a particular need for additional strings and double-reed players.
