The Golden State Pops Orchestra is currently in search of 3 new Board members to help lead and provide foundational support to the organization.

With a driving mission to create, develop and present innovative and fresh orchestral concerts, the Golden State Pops Orchestra (GSPO) is quickly becoming nationally known as a pioneer in providing quality film music with a second life on the concert stage, in productions that absorb audiences from beginning to end.

GSPO's first notes were sounded in April of 2002 with the downbeat of the Star Wars Main Title. Beginning with this first production, GSPO's average audience has grown exponentially from one season to the next. In 2011, GSPO was honored by the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce as the 2011 Business of the Year, a coup for an arts organization. In addition, GSPO has been honored with the opportunity to premiere more than 100 works independent of the original films, often with the composer in attendance or conducting the orchestra.

The orchestra performs a wide variety of musical repertoire, including classical, Broadway, pop music and even video game soundtracks. However, the primary focus of the GSPO remains film music, a specialty of the orchestra since its founding in 2002. The orchestra is composed of professional freelance musicians from around the Los Angeles area and operates under a Metropolitan Agreement with the American Federation of Musicians, Local 47.

One of GSPO's core values is the continuous advancement of our artistic capacity and production values, while maintaining a focus on high-quality performance. We work constantly to build even more relationships with composers and entertainment industry professionals, and to bring our unique brand of entertainment to world-renowned venues throughout Southern California.

"What this orchestra has above many others is PASSION. You can hear it in their playing. These musicians LOVE music. I only wish more folks would take a chance and go see/hear them and discover what I did all the way from Indiana. I fly out a couple times a year and arrange my trip around one of their glorious concerts. If you are close by, get a ticket and be amazed at the GSPO!" - Peter Hackman, www.fansoffilmmusic.com
