Mission: The mission of the Glen Rock Pops is to present live orchestral concerts of popular music in our community, by members of the community, for the entire community.


The Glen Rock Pops Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Anthony LaGruth continues the almost five-decade tradition of performing popular music drawn from many musical genres such as rock, jazz, Broadway, movies, television shows, or light classical.


Comprised of musicians from area communities, the Glen Rock Pops brings the gift of live music, to friends, neighbors, and fellow community members.


Support the Pops.  Come enjoy a Pops concert.
