The Akron Pops Orchestra is an all volunteer orchestra comprised of approximately 50 dedicated and talented musicians representing varying levels of musical expertise.  Each member volunteers his or her time and talent to play with the Pops.  The rewards we receive are the smiles, joyful tears, applause, and thank you’s we get from our grateful listeners.  The current Musical Director of the Akron Pops Orchestra is Mr. Kristan Crane.

The Pops welcomes talented musicians who are interested in sharing the gift of music to contact us for more information.  Most rehearsals and performances are held on Thursday evenings.  Formal auditions are not required.

At this time the orchestra has an urgent need to recruit:  An experienced percussionist
