The Mt. Hood Pops Orchestra was founded in 1983 as a nonprofit community organization. Players in the Pops come from all walks of life and ages. The orchestra performs at least four concerts per year on Sunday afternoons. Mt. Hood Pops programs are designed to appeal to families and individuals who enjoy listening to a mix of traditional pops and symphonic repertoire.

Some of the musicians are available to play in small groups for various events, including receptions, weddings and parties, both as a public relations outreach and as a fund raiser for the orchestra.

For information on ensembles to play for your special occasion, call Marilyn Pierik at 503-669-1937.
