The Philly Pops is shutting down
Posted by: TimDunleavy 07:32 pm EST 11/16/22

In a major blow to Philadelphia’s arts scene, leaders of the Philly Pops say they will dissolve the organization, leaving the city without a stand-alone pops orchestra and the Kimmel Center with one fewer resident company.

Facing mounting vendor debt and depressed ticket sales since the pandemic shutdown ended, the group has decided to fold, says longtime pops president Frank Giordano.

“Things have evolved. The pops used to have subscriptions that were in the ascendancy, and now subscriptions are down,” said Giordano. “I’m told it’s this way nationally, that these people are just not coming back period.”
