Pops on the Plaza


Union Symphony Youth Orchestra performed with Union Symphony Orchestra at the Pops on the Plaza in Downtown Monroe on Saturday, May 17. Guests were immersed in the sounds of Argentina, Spain, and Mexico as the evening highlighted the musical rhythms of Latin America.

Prelude Junior Strings Orchestra and Union Jazz kicked off the concert with overture performances that wowed the crowd.
