Cleveland Pops Chorus
The Cleveland Pops Orchestra Chorus debuted at Severance Hall on Friday, November 2, 2012, in a concert of music by legendary song-writing teams in a performance titled “The Song Writing Giants of Broadway.” Donald Rosenberg, Cleveland Plain Dealer critic, in attendance at the debut concert, wrote, “The chorus will appear regularly with the orchestra, and for this Pops audiences can be truly grateful.”
The chorus meets every Monday evening at Cleveland State University. Originally created to partner with Carl Topilow and the Cleveland Pops Orchestra, the chorus has performed not only the greatest of Broadway, but significant choral and orchestral literature as well. In addition to performing with the Pops Orchestra regularly, the chorus has also performed with the Cleveland Winds, the Cleveland Philharmonic, the West Shore Chorale, and with Andrea Bocelli and the Pops Orchestra at Rocket Mortgage Field House. This is a diverse group of individuals from all over the Cleveland area with one commonality; they all love to sing and share the joy of singing with others. Our membership includes a youth minister, lawyer, businessmen and women, teachers and professors, and many fine music professionals and Cleveland area stage performers.
If you are interested in the chorus, auditions for next year will be held in August at CSU. Please see below for the application.
