I love the California Pops Orchestra! as does our entire family! Saw this link on the Pops website-a great article here, thanks for making it available to read. Just wish we had discovered Kim Venaas's Pops Orchestra sooner. I'm one of its fans and one of its cheerleaders! Looking forward to enjoying the 2008-2009 season with y'all!
