The Cleveland Pops Orchestra returns to Hoover Auditorium for an encore performance at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, June 30.

Northeast Ohio has been the home of The Cleveland Pops Orchestra since it was founded in 1993 by Carl Topilow and Shirley Morgenstern.

This symphonic-size, professional ensemble performs popular and cinematic music, jazz, big band and Broadway, as well as light classical works.

Their second performance in Lakeside will feature patriotic music like "The Star-Spangled Banner," "1812 Overture," "God Bless the USA" and other classics. Their performance will also incorporate favorites, such as medleys from the hits of Elvis Presley and Billy Joel, and the movie "Grease," and songs such as "Sweet Caroline" and "Copacabana."

Along with its mission to enrich and entertain through music, The Cleveland Pops Orchestra has a deep commitment to educate children through experiencing and appreciating the arts.

Now in its 23rd season, the ensemble is a nonprofit organization, supported in part by individual donations and grants. In addition to numerous free concerts throughout the community, the group performs an annual concert series and has played for many prestigious events and television programs.

As founding conductor of The Cleveland Pops Orchestra, Topilow is renowned for his versatility, whether he's holding a conductor’s baton or his trademark red clarinet. He's a multi-talented virtuoso who is equally at home in classical and popular music, both as conductor and instrumentalist.

His Pops’ performances blend light classical, swing, jazz, Broadway and patriotic music, and he usually finds an occasion to include a number that features him as clarinetist.

Topilow also holds conducting posts at the Cleveland Institute of Music, the National Repertory Orchestra and with the Firelands Symphony. He has appeared as guest conductor for more than 120 orchestras in 37 states and 12 countries.
