Ocean City Pops Orchestra

Ocean City is proud to be the home of the Ocean City Pops Orchestra!

Our Orchestra is made up of outstanding musicians with impressive professional backgrounds. Many have played with the finest orchestras in the world, for Broadway shows and touring companies, and with top name recording artists. They have impressive résumés with extensive training at top music schools and have studied under some of the finest teachers in the country. Many of the orchestra members themselves are leading teachers and mentors in their fields.

Maestro Scheible, himself an outstanding trumpet player and teacher, blends their unique abilities into a cohesive group that plays each type of music as if it were their specialty.  In this section we are proud to share a short résumé of our regular members, many of whom have been with the Pops for years.  Enjoy meeting them using the section links to the left or below.
