Winnipeg Pops Orchestra
The Winnipeg Pops Orchestra (WPO) is a community-driven organization that performs popular and classical music. Our dedicated group of musicians have a wide range of ages and abilities, and love to perform across Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba. The WPO fosters a community tradition by reaching out to young musicians, nurturing local talent, and providing a fun, challenging experience for our members!
Artistic Mission Statement: To provide an opportunity for musicians to practice and perform a variety of music genres from classical to pops, of high artistic quality, in a full orchestral group.
Founded in 1956, with an original group of six members, the Winnipeg Pops Orchestra has grown to 70 members that represent all facets and sections of a modern symphony orchestra. Our group celebrated its 60th Anniversary of musical excellence in 2016.
