Harvard Pops Orchestra

Purpose Statement

The members of the Harvard Pops Orchestra endeavor to provide the Harvard community, the students, faculty, affiliates, and patrons thereof, with unique musical experiences. Through seasonal concerts built around creative themes, presenting an eclectic range of music from classical to jazz to rock, and employing theatrical and visual elements, we strive to create events that are not only enriching, but also highly enjoyable. In addition, we aim to cultivate the musical expertise of our musicians, by scheduling regular rehearsals, as well as by encouraging students to conduct, arrange, orchestrate, or compose original works to be performed by the orchestra. Our overall goal is to play music at a very high level for the entertainment of the Harvard community.
