Great Scot! How lucky are we that St. Patrick’s Day lines up with The Pops calendar?

And we’re not talking a load of Blarney!

Our Musicians

Who plays in The Pops Orchestra?

They are teachers, parents, neighbors, students. They have jobs. They have children. They have homes and schedules and commitments. They teach at local colleges, high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. They work in business, the arts and health care. Some are retired. Some are military veterans. They live in Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, Anna Maria Island, Punta Gorda, Nokomis, Sun City Center, St. Petersburg, and Holmes Beach among others. Some of them are snowbirds. And they are all musicians with The Pops Orchestra. This season we have more than 60 musicians who bring their skill, passion and talent to the stage.
