Macon Pops

Bringing the highest quality production and performance of popular music to a broader audience than found at traditional symphonic concerts.

Matt Catingub

Artistic Director & Conductor

I am looking forward to seeing everyone experience a new kind of event that includes not only brilliant musical performances, but also the element of casual fun. It’s a new and exciting combination for Macon, and for the orchestra community in general.

The history of music in Macon is well documented and we hope to tap into this, using it as inspiration for the future. In the coming years, we plan to bring world-class artists and unique musical events to you, and hope that Macon Pops becomes not only one of the leading arts organizations in Georgia, but indeed the whole country. The future looks bright indeed.

Steve Moretti

President & CEO

It’s our goal to break down the barriers of what people think about orchestra that it’s a stuffy, elitist, dress-up and sit-still type of thing. At Macon Pops, we want everyone from all walks of life and interests to experience the exciting event and have an opportunity to truly appreciate world class music.

-Steve Moretti, Drummer, President & CEO
