Abstract (summary)

Presenting "pops" concerts is a mainstay of virtually every orchestra in the United States. As in its beginning near the turn of the twentieth century, they provide additional employment for musicians, especially in the summer, and attract an untapped audience to the symphony orchestra. While the success of "pops" concerts depends on many factors, most important is the selection of the program. Currently, music directors must investigate publishers' catalogs and glean from events by other orchestras to learn what literature is available. This document eliminates some of these steps by providing an accessible and comprehensive repertoire list of "pops" repertoire.

This list is presented alphabetically by the composer's last name including pertinent information such as duration, instrumentation, and publisher contacts. Four appendices follow, cross-referencing the list respectively by instrumentation, duration, theme, and title. The final appendix lists the complete contact information of all the publishers represented.

Saving valuable time for music directors and orchestral librarians is the goal of this project.
