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.
