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.


Fall rehearsals for the 89th season of the Akron Pops Orchestra are already underway and we will be meeting tonight, Thursday September 17, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. for our third rehearsal.
I just found out this afternoon that the orchestra will need to recruit a new pianist. So, if you are an experienced pianist (or know of someone who is) that would like to consider the possibility of volunteering for this important position within the Akron Pops Orchestra, please check out our website: www.akronpops.org. Interested candidates may e-mail: auditions@akronpops.org.
