Edmonton Pops Orchestra
The Edmonton Pops Orchestra is a flexible music ensemble with a mandate to perform and create accessible, alternative public entertainment. The orchestra presents a varied season and has featured popular music from every genre. The orchestra regularly performs as a pit orchestra for various musical theatre productions and is the resident orchestra for the Johann Strauss Ball. The Edmonton Pops writes much of its own music and annually hosts the Edmonton Composers Competition to enrich local composition for orchestra. To this end, the Edmonton Pops has committed to community accessibility and has pioneered their one of a kind Master Class experience, which gives anyone the opportunity to solo with orchestra.
