About Us

The Gainesville Pops! is a performing wind ensemble comprised of professional musician, music educators and serious hobbyists, all from the Gainesville area. Musical selections at a GPops! concert may include light classical, broadway show tunes, hollywood movie themes, popular hits, marches and jazz arrangements. The groups was formed in 2008 and is enjoying entertaining North Florida audiences. Our purpose is simple; Let Us Entertain You!

We are a by-invitation performing wind ensemble dedicated to entertainment. We seek first to entertain ourselves and then the audience by playing familiar music that is known and loved by performers and audiences alike.

Expenses are music and rehearsal space. Venue costs have either been donated or are at no charge. We hope to keep it that way. We each provide our own black music stand for concerts, where needed, and of course our own instruments. The Pops does not expect to purchase any instruments or equipment with member funds.  So the short version is; our members donate their time, talent and annual dues. Every one of our Pops musicians contribute in their own way and we are grateful for each one. We also accept donations and checks can be made out to: Gainesville Pops.
