Great Scot! How lucky are we that St. Patrick’s Day lines up with The Pops calendar? It’s time to bring that Irish tradition to the Pops stage as we host Southwest Florida’s premier Pipe and Drum group, The Jacobites, along with the Irish Dance Academy of Sarasota and the Riverview High School Highland Dancers on St. Patrick’s Day weekend! Awaken your senses with the sounds of the Emerald Isles and the pulse of ancient traditional dance. Let The Pops be your lucky charm this year as we perform, “Danny Boy,” “Tam O’Shanter,” “Scotland the Brave,” “Amazing Grace,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and a few surprises in between. 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. The Pops is proud to be a community wide orchestra with musicians who live and work in our midst.

Special Thanks
