Radioactive Orchestra Concert
Salt Lake Pops Orchestra performing Bruno Mars' "Grenade," featuring Lindsey Stirling
In anticipation of their upcoming Radioactive album, the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra treats audiences to live takes on some of their best-loved videos. Drawing from the group's YouTube channel—which has amassed more than three million views—the orchestra will play their covers of Bruno Mars' "Grenade" and Katy Perry's "Firework," as well as medleys from beloved musical comedies The Lord of the Rings and Dr. Who. In addition, the show will include works from the upcoming album, including covers of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" and Adele's "Skyfall." Guest artists will include Jessie Funk, David Osmond, the Salt Lake Men's Choir, and The Pointe Dance Academy.
Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra
Under the guidance of founder and director Nathaniel Drew, the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra's skilled musicians tackle movie scores, pop hits, and other earworms—adding a dose of social media for good measure. A YouTube sensation (a recent Bruno Mars cover has garnered nearly two million views), the Pops maintains a robust blog and encourages audiences to request songs and comment on the current repertoire. Many of its stirring arrangements can leap from stereos into living rooms thanks to sheet music posted online, a gesture that allows fans to tackle "Firework" and "Skyfall" on their very best kazoo.
