NZ Pops’ artistic and musical director Rita Paczian says the NZPO’s core values are simple. “We are performing music that audiences want to hear, at the highest professional standards. We want to give audiences an uplifting and exciting experience that offers interaction between performers and listeners, and above all, we want to touch people’s souls.”
The New Zealand Pops Orchestra is inspired by internationally successful and established groups, including the Boston Pops Orchestra, Andre Rieu’s Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Queensland Pops Orchestra.
NZPO has garnered the support of several respected professionals, who each play a vital part in the running and establishment of the NZPO and New Zealand Pops Orchestra Foundation Trust (NZPOFT).
