The special inaugural event of the California Pops Orchestra (A Broadway Evening and DInner, introducing the Ca Pops Orchestra...formerly the Peninsula Pops Ochestra) that happened at the Menlo Circus Club this spring was so well received and was quite a magical night to remember. The 60 member Palo Alto-based orchestra was headed up by Conductor Kim Venaas. It is the only exclusive Pops Orchestra in Northern Ca. Kim played wonderful Broadway tunes in addition to numbers that had never been played before. He spoke before each piece giving the inside scoop on how the song was inspired or some fun fact we may not have known about. The show was so well received that the audience gave a warm standing ovation and followed by a enthusiastic encore. It was an evening to remember by all attended.
