This is an exciting time for the Reading Pops Orchestra, which has come a long way since Wes Fisher formed the organization in 1969. It was Fisher’s vision to create a first-class orchestra that would be committed to promoting the musical arts in Berks County through the maintenance of a professional orchestra for public concert performances.The Pops has changed over the years, but its mission remains the same.
The first inaugural “Sunday With The Pops” series in 2007-2008 featured collaborations with the City Rhythm Orchestra, The Four Freshmen, and Diane Schuur. Sunday with the Pops is held at the Miller Center for the Arts in Reading, PA. The last concert was Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde (pictures shown below). In the next concert, the Reading Pops will be collaborating with The Four Freshman on January 27th at 3pm.
