About Firebird Pops
The online musical sensation Firebird Pops was born "out of the ashes" of the COVID-19 shutdown, its inaugural virtual performances taking grateful audiences by storm. Under the baton of founder and music director, Brendan Kenney, almost 60 musicians performed Harry Potter Symphonic Suite, a medley of the score from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, garnering praise from MuggleNet.com, Nerdist, and New England’s Channel 7 News. Since then, the orchestra has continued to grow in size and notoriety with its innovative digital performances from Phantom of the Opera, the launch of the Firebird Vox choir, and fresh seasonal concerts for the Halloween and Winter Holidays. Formally granted nonprofit status this summer, the Firebird Pops organization looks forward to expanding its in-person repertoire, and The Umbrella is proud to introduce them to live audiences in our state-of-the-art Main Stage Theater144!
