This new program, “Dancing with the Pops!,” will have the audience dancing in the aisles, featuring dance music from around the world. Joined by dancers from McDade-Cara School of Irish Dance and the Oxford Center for Dance, Music Director Joseph Gehring will conduct the Pops through some of the most exciting music ever heard. The program culminates with the beloved dance music from “West Side Story.” This is another concert you don’t want to miss!

Sixty five of Chester County’s finest instrumental players are brought together for every concert, under the direction of Joseph Gehring. Since its founding in 2005, the Orchestra has performed close to 50 concerts at more than 20 venues in the county. In the fall of this year, the Chesco Pops will celebrate its 10th Anniversary!

The Chesco Pops is again partnering with a local non-profit in each of the communities where the concert venues are located. For the price of a ticket, a concertgoer will enjoy another fabulous Chesco Pops performance, and also support the ongoing community programs and activities of the Oxford Area Senior Center, the Phoenixville Area Public Library and the Chester County Historical Society (W.C.). A percentage of ticket revenues will be awarded to each partner.

Concert admission prices are $15 for an adult, $12 for a senior (62 plus), and ALL children and students will be admitted free in an effort to encourage families to attend these performances. Tickets are available online and at the door.
