About the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra
The Cincinnati Pops, which also performs as the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO), is under the direction of John Morris Russell and presents a diverse array of musical styles, all bathed in the world-renowned “Cincinnati Sound.” The Pops was officially founded in 1977 with the late Erich Kunzel as an offshoot of the 124-year-old CSO, and just since 1980, the Orchestra has sold ten million recordings around the globe.
