Education and Community Engagement


Through inspired performance coupled with resonant educational and engagement initiatives, The Philly POPS celebrates and advances appreciation of American traditions and community through the American heritage of song.  We honor this distinctive musical history and continually encourage our listeners to discover the joyous experience of all forms of American popular music.

The Philly POPS' engagement activities seek to inspire our constituents through textured programs of ongoing community connection.  Each activity is coupled with rigorous standards and evaluation. Programs are designed to enable community members to experience transformation through art, connecting them to the traditions and values of the greater culture and spreading joy and creativity through music. Rooted in a dedicated staff and talented musician base, the POPS' collaborative programming and curriculum are developed and refreshed through frequent interaction and input from all key stakeholders.
