Holiday Pops Chorus Maestro Scott Arkenberg
Holiday Pops Chicago is truly a labor of love, featuring a 90+ member all volunteer choir and the 22 piece Ravenswood Ensemble, all under the direction of Maestro Scott Arkenberg. This choir comes together each October to begin rehearsing (the Tuesday following Columbus Day is always their first rehearsal) in order to present a magical evening of song and joy, laughter and warmth that you don’t want to miss! Holiday Pops Chicago is the way to “kick off” the Christmas season. The one night performance takes place in early December.
Truly a labor of love, this diverse group of hearts and hands and voices is made up of amateur singers from Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. The members of the Holiday Pops Chorus come from all walks of life (teachers, lawyers, students, financial planners, judges, medical personnel, retirees, nannies) and many have sung the Holiday Pops together for many years. They do it for the “love of the game!” Auditions are not required and all are welcome!
