About Nashville Pops Orchestra:
Five years 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, Lee Greenwood and Rhonda Vincent, we played our first concert to a packed house at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
Founded by orchestral entrepreneur and conductor, Jeff Bown, The Nashville Pops Orchestra is already gaining notoriety as potentially one of the best, most imaginative Pops orchestra organizations in the country. The Nashville Pops Orchestra is a 60-Piece All Professional Orchestra featuring some of the finest players in the world. Funds raised through donations created the opportunity to award $5,000 to a deserving institution. The Orchestra started in Nashville, music’s greatest city, with plans to expand footprint into other areas and other states. In each new city, they will involve new communities, new schools, and provide further fundraising opportunities.
