A Message from The APO

As an organization that strives to break the mold of classical concerts, we are using the COVID-19 situation to continue connecting with all of our patrons virtually. With this in mind, we will be changing the format of our remaining events this season. Our NextGen competition, Music & Mindfulness practice, and MainStage show will no longer be taking place at Arena Stage, but instead will be transformed into virtual performances to accommodate social regulations in place throughout our community. Each show will feature the APO musicians and original scores you have come to love, that will accompany our performers, yoga instructor, Dan Carter, and APO artists.

In addition, we have created a new initiative called “APO United” to continue to employ and support our artists through these uncertain times.

Each week, APO will be posting intimate cyber concerts by past artists, highlights from our APO instrumentalist, and playlists of positivity by Maestro Luke Frazier. Join us for this virtual series on our Instagram, Youtube Channel, or Facebook Page. If you’re able, please consider donating here to support our artists through this new series.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for our ticket purchasers, but ask that you will consider donating your ticket payment to help support the APO (a tax-deductible donation), as we will continue to employ our artists throughout the postponing of live events. If you would like your order to be refunded, please email hannah@theamericanpops.org to initiate your refund.
