Corporate Sponsorship Info

The Cleveland Pops Orchestra, under the direction of Carl Topilow, presents the highest quality symphonic pops music to entertain, enrich, and educate a wide and diverse audience to develop an enduring appreciation of music. Approaching its 21st season, The Cleveland Pops Orchestra has entertained close to 750,000 people through our performances at Severance Hall and our Family Holiday Matinees at Connor Palace Theater. Bringing timeless appeal, our powerful brand of music unites people of all ages, race, and socio-economic backgrounds because “we play the music the whole world sings.” 

The Cleveland Pops believes in the importance of community vibrancy and connectedness and therefore enriches Northeast Ohio through our performances, community concerts, and Youth Educational programs. In 2015-16, the Cleveland Pops Orchestra:

  • provided over 15 concerts in NEO
  • engaged over 10,000 people through pre-concert lectures and community events
  • educated over 1600 Pre-K – 3rd grade students through our Actual Music program
  • 33% of our engagement events were FREE to the public

These enrichment and educational opportunities are only possible through the generous support from our corporate sponsors. 

By supporting the Cleveland Pops Orchestra and its extraordinary programs, your company will impact the vibrancy of NEO, enhance your brand, strengthen your corporate citizenship reputation, and communicate key messages to loyal audiences.  A member of the Cleveland Pops Orchestra staff or board of directors will be following up with you in the upcoming weeks.
