Jeff Bown has always been passionate about orchestral music. He conducts, he arranges and has brought major orchestras – e.g. The London Symphony Orchestra – to the United States on tour. He has conducted the London Symphony Orchestra at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London and brought that esteemed orchestra to the US on tour. A crowd of 10,000 sold-out the concert he produced with the LSO at what is now the Bridgestone Arena. He has worked with some of the finest musicians both in Nashville and nationally on a variety of projects, including collaborating with award-winning movie composer, the late Jerry Goldsmith.
Sensing that most orchestras do little to involve their communities, Jeff has created a new kind of orchestra ̶- The Nashville Pops Orchestra - with dual ambitions: to be genuinely great musically, yet at the same time the orchestra, its management and musicians, will involve the community on many levels in everything they do.
