Our History

In 1926, a group of area physicians formed the Akron Doctor’s Orchestra so they could share their musical talent with the community. Over time, musicians from all walks of life joined the orchestra diversifying its membership. Consequently, in 1986 the orchestra’s name was changed to the Akron Pops Orchestra — a name which is well-respected throughout the greater Akron area.

Our Mission: Volunteer musicians dedicated to providing enjoyment to our community by sharing the gift of music.

 

To all the wonderful musicians out there! ...

Thanks to all our wonderful musicians in the Akron Pops Orchestra for making 2015 a simply marvelous year!

There was a WONDERFUL turn out from the community for the Pops final 2015 Christmas concert at Quirk Cultural Center last Thursday!! By the time the concert began the Newell Theater was completely full and truly standing room only after that. Even if N.E. Ohio's weather didn't cooperate to make it "look like Christmas", the mild weather made it possible for many residents to venture out to enjoy the festive holiday music.

I wish I had thought to bring a decent camera and apologize that the photos I "tried" to take with my phone aren't very good :-(. The somewhat in focus earlier one was probably taken about 20 minutes before the concert began, so there were still some open seats showing.
