The Cleveland Pops Orchestra is proud to announce its 20th Anniversary Celebration honorees:

Conductor and Artistic Director Carl Topilow
President and Chief Executive Officer Shirley Morgenstern

Carl Topilow and Shirley Morgenstern

Co-founders of the Cleveland Pops Orchestra, Carl Topilow and Shirley Morgenstern, had a dream in common. The couple shared a vision of starting an orchestra devoted to the music people loved from Broadway, movies, holidays, patriotic, swing, and jazz. Carl and Shirley wanted the Cleveland community to enjoy the music that was truly American, played by an orchestra that was symphonic, rich, full, and inspiring. They began in 1993 to make their dream come true, and on October 12, 1996, The Cleveland Pops Orchestra, under the talented direction of Carl Topilow and the business leadership of Shirley Morgenstern, made their acclaimed public debut; the first in a long series of concerts over the past twenty seasons. From that first instant success to growing national recognition, Carl and Shirley have never looked back, but are always looking forward like true entrepreneurs to each new venture, saying: “This could be the start of something big!”

Then music critic for The Plain Dealer, Don Rosenberg, proclaimed of Cleveland Pops’ public debut on October 12, 1996: “The Cleveland Pops Orchestra is here at last! … Indeed! And we are all the better for it.”
