The great Arthur Fiedler invented the modern era’s Pops concert, mixing the finest popular classics alongside the emerging repertoire of classical music used in movies, Broadway, and television.  We open our Pops season with our own Boston Pops-style concert featuring some of the most memorable scores from the classic popular literature.  We will feature some of our own Erie Philharmonic stars and celebrate why audiences are raving about the sound and technical finesse of our hometown orchestra.  We finish the evening with an over-the-top performance of Tchaikovsky’s fiery 1812 Overture, complete with cannons, choir and lights.
