The Pops Ensemble is Lakeside Pride’s newest ensemble and gave its debut performance in March 2021. The group consists of winds, brass, and percussion instruments, and plays a wide variety of repertoire. “Pops,” to us, includes musical medleys, movie soundtracks, standard classical works, pop arrangements, and beyond. They are also directed by drag queen Manic Maxxie, so their concerts include plenty of flare, humor, drama, and special surprises!
Rehearsal cycles usually occur between November-February and March-June.

VanderCook College of Music
