Master Class with Philly POPS
November 7, 2016
Michael Ludwig, Concertmaster of Philly POPS, the largest standalone pops orchestra in the United States, and world-class soloist will lead a master class on Monday, November 14 at 6:30pm in the Main Auditorium. This class is comprised of selected students from our University Orchestra directed by Rosalind Erwin, but attendance for observation is free and open to the public. Whether you’re a practicing musician or a classical music fan, watching this gifted musician in action will be a fascinating and entertaining experience. Students will perform selections from famous concertos or sonatas and will, in return, receive the expert critiques and personal observations of Maestro Ludwig.
This master class serves as a prelude to the University Orchestra’s fall concert on Saturday, December 3 at 7pm in the Main Auditorium, where Michael Ludwig will return as a guest soloist for the Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, in G minor, Op. 26 (1866), a staple of the violin repertory.

Now in its 38th season, the official POPS orchestra of Pennsylvania serves a growing audience of over 100,000 annually. Music Director Michael Krajewski and the 65-piece Philly POPS orchestra keeps listeners tapping their toes to an impressive repertoire of songs from colonial times to the 1920s up through today’s chart toppers. The Philly POPS performs as a founding resident company of The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and at venues throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
