The "Senior Pops Orchestra of Long Island" was established on September 12, 1979 when two local musicians formed and funded the group as a vehicle for senior citizen musicians to express their lifelong musical creativity, bringing entertainment and culture to an appreciative Long Island community.
Today, we have evolved into a multi-generational orchestra with musicians of every age. We continue to bring the same musical enjoyment to a faithful and growing audience. Since its inception, our 60-member ensemble has always performed numerous free concerts annually, and has distinguished itself as a serious contributor to Long Island's thriving cultural scene.
We are the "Symphonic Pops of Long Island".
Our Mission: To bring the joys of music to the senior community and the community at large . To provide the opportunity for community groups, senior musicians and all others to perform.
