All About the Pops!

Pops on the Plaza

Our third annual Pops on the Plaza kicked off with “The Star Spangled Banner” and concluded with the energetic “Danzas Cubanas”. Union Symphony Orchestra performed Tchaikaovsky’s Capriccio Italienneand “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, among other favorites. USYO also gave a vivacious rendition of the Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas song “Smooth”. This event drew a crowd of over 700 people.


Mayor Kilgore welcomed an enthusiastic audience on behalf of the City of Monroe. Frank Dominguez of WDAV Classical Public Radio spoke on behalf of the station and the Hispanic component of the evening’s program. A presentation was made by Kim Norwood and Caleb Barnhardt to concert season sponsors BetterCarPeople and Big Ring. Matthew Belk (BCP) and Jason Walle (Big Ring) received crystal plaques to commemorate their four seasons of support to Union Symphony. Additionally, the Union County Community Foundation was acknowledged, as well as Union County Community Arts Council and Union County Public Schools. Thank you all for coming to Pops on the Plaza and for your support of Union Symphony!
