Macon Popsis an innovative, high energy, and world class orchestra event bringing together the most talented studio and orchestral musicians from around the southeast and across the country. But… this is no traditional orchestra.
If images of expensive tuxes, tight-lipped audiences, and conservative, structured performances float through your brain, let us change your outlook.
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.
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

This year, we are proud to bring that music to life by kicking off the light show on November 30 with a live performance, which will be synced to the lights. We are also releasing a recording of this fabulous Christmas music so you can take Macon Pops with you wherever you go!
