Meet our Musicians

Dedication. Musicianship. Artistic excellence. Commitment to the community. Meet the members of the Akron Pops Orchestra.

The Akron Pops Orchestra is comprised of a group of dedicated and talented musicians representing varying levels of musical expertise. Each member volunteers his or her time, talent, and resources to play with the Pops. We are rewarded by the smiles, joyful tears, applause, and thank you’s we get from our grateful listeners.
