Just over a year ago The Nashville Pops Orchestra was born. After much planning and considerable help from our good friend and inestimable artist, Tony Bennett; together with multi-award-winning composer/arranger Jorge Calandrelli, we played our first concert to a packed house at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
Six standing ovations reaffirmed we were on to something!
Founded by orchestral entrepreneur and conductor, Jeff Bown, the Nashville Pops Orchestra is already beginning to be known as potentially one of the best, most imaginative, Pops orchestral organizations in the country.
The new orchestra’s concerts will be unique. Nothing like them has been done before anywhere in the US. Many of the concerts will break new ground by combining great musical events and active partnerships with major schools; providing a potentially life-changing opportunity for thousands of high school students.
