The Lexington Pops Chorus Welcomes You to Its 35th Season!
The Lexington Pops Chorus was formed in 1982. Directed by Robert A. Lague, the chorus has two basic ideas that differentiate it from many other choruses: its programs are based on a Pops format of both classical and popular music and no auditions are required for membership.
The Pops is open to anyone eighteen years of age or older. It is based in Lexington, but fewer than half of its members are from Lexington and more than half have been in the chorus for longer than ten years.
We sing a wide variety of music, including classical, jazz, blues, Broadway, and folk, as well as "theme" concerts, such as our Night at the Opera, American Civil War and American Composers concerts. We enjoy singing folk songs from various countries and in several languages, including Latin, German, Ladino, Spanish, French and Hebrew. Some of the works from the classical repertoire which we have performed include pieces by Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Mozart, and Schubert. Because of this great variety, we enjoy great challenges and are always learning and having fun!
General information: Auditions: There is no audition, but new chorus members must be able to read music.
