Pops orchestra

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A pops orchestra is an orchestra that plays popular music (generally traditional pop) and show tunes as well as well-known classical works. Pops orchestras are generally organised in large cities and are distinct from the more "highbrow" symphony or philharmonic orchestras which also may exist in the same city. This is not to say that the distinction is complete; many symphony orchestras (for instance, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra) put on pops performances with some regularity.
