(ANN ARBOR) - Led by Music Director Tristan Rais-Sherman, the Michigan Pops Orchestra presents Game of Pops on Sunday April 13th Michigan Theater. This April, the University of Michigan’s only student-run, student-directed orchestra will perform its annual spring concert!

This semester, the Michigan Pops is putting on a show guaranteed to thrill audience-members of all ages, including the music of John Williams, Mario, Shostakovich, The Olympic Games, Hercules, Halo, Kingdom Hearts, Prokofiev and, of course, Game of Thrones. This concert is sure to defy any stereotypes of a typical “orchestra concert” by utilizing a unique combination of vocal performers, multimedia, stage antics, and special effects. This semester, we will be featuring the Michigan Pops Concerto Competition winner, Allen Chang. Once again, Game of Pops promises to be an epic, adventure-packed show!

Pops appeals to the music-lover in everyone with its diverse repertoire, from classical pieces to video game themes to popular film scores! Working under the guidance of the University Activities Center, the Michigan Pops Orchestra’s members comprise a diverse group (undergraduate and graduate) from all disciplines, from English to Environmental Studies to Engineering! This 97-member, tightly-knit ensemble demonstrates commitment to and passion for musical collaboration each semester with an exhilarating performance!
