How can I bring POP to my child’s school?

If you are interested in having POP programming at your child’s school, get in touch with your principal! We have a selection process to help us find potential new sites, and having a principal reach out to us is an excellent way to start the process.

Will POP be offering other types of music in the future, besides classical?

While the orchestras and ensembles at Play On Philly perform repertoire from a variety of genres, the orchestra and the community it fosters is at the center of what we do.

Can my student attend POP Summer Program?
