Play On, Philly! (POP) is a well-funded non-profit that enriches K-12 students’ lives by providing daily, after-school music instruction in communities that have little to no access to music education. POP students receive tuition-free instrumental group lessons as well as general music, choir and composition training. All students participate in both large and small ensembles and master classes with world-class musicians.
