Led by Music Director Rotem Weinberg and Assistant Music Director Tal Benatar, the Michigan Pops Orchestra presents “Pops Braves the Elements” on Saturday, April 6th, 2019 at 7:00 P.M. in the Michigan Theater. Finding inspiration in the four elements, “Pops Braves the Elements” is a show guaranteed to ground and thrill audience-members of all ages with its diverse repertoire, which includes music from Stravinsky’s The Firebird, Strauss’ Thunder and Lightning Polka, Pokémon and a slew of Disney’s finest. “Pops Braves the Elements” will be a dynamic and engaging show utilizing a unique combination of vocal performers, multimedia, stage antics, and special effects. This semester, we will be featuring the Michigan Pops Concerto Competition winner, Eugenia Cho, in a performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s famous Violin Concerto in E minor Op. 64, mov. 1.

Working under the guidance of the University Activities Center, the Michigan Pops Orchestra members comprise a diverse group of undergraduate and graduate students studying anything from English to Engineering. This 100-member, tightly-knit ensemble demonstrates passion for musical collaboration each semester with an exhilarating performance.
