Ticket sales to The Pops Orchestra cover less than half of the Orchestra’s operating expenses, making contributed income and volunteer time essential to the Pops’s survival. In this way, the Pops is no different from any other American orchestra. The difference is that the Pops is your orchestra.

Your contribution ensures that The Pops Orchestra can continue its over 45-year legacy of providing thrilling live performances and outstanding music education for the entire Sarasota and Bradenton area.

Thank you for making the music possible.
