The all-volunteer Friends of the Pops
group affiliated with Cincinnati Pops Orchestra
is hosting a new lecture series beginning in March. The series will be hosted in the Mercantile Library throughout spring and provide information for those who are interested in getting a sneak peek of what it’s like to play as part of the orchestra.
“We’re really excited that Friends of the Pops has taken on this initiative to offer the public to experience the orchestra in a new way,” says Meghan Berneking, Director of Communications for the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. “This lecture series gets to the heart of giving Pops fans the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes by engaging a little deeper with artists they see on stage already while also opening doors for those who haven’t been to a concert.”
Friends of the Pops was formed in 1991 by its late conductor Erich Kunzel and is committed to increasing awareness and pride for the Cincinnati Pops and provides opportunities for Pops fans to get together.
Lectures are free and open to the public, although donations are suggested.
