The Philly POPS gets grooving with the sounds of Hitsville, USA! 

Dancing in the Streets: The Music of Motown features the full Philly POPS orchestra on timeless Motown hits, including songs from iconic artists Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder and more—with a nod to Philly’s own legendary producers, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.  

Songs include “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Dancing In The Street,” “I Heard it Through The Grapevine,” “My Girl,” “Superstition,” and more.

“The Motown sound captures so many emotions—love, joy, resilience and more—which is why these songs stand the test of time,” said POPS President Frank Giordano. “I love this music ... the way it makes you feel, and the way it moves the audience.”
