An irresistible set list of songs by three brilliant singer/songwriters – Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Nicks – performed by local vocal icon, Anita Jackson.

Pop!Pop!Pop! returns to The Sheldon after debuting to enthusiastic crowds earlier this year. Formed by music director Adam Maness, Pop!Pop!Pop! seeks to spread the incredible music, stories and artistry of the greatest songwriters in history via the most iconic medium: the orchestra.

Pop! Pop! Pop! Orchestra celebrates the most dominant musical media of the past 50 years, popular music, through the power of live string performances – creating magical shared experiences that bring community together around our distinctive musical heritage, and continually encourage the joyous experience of all forms of popular music.

More than an orchestra, Pop!Pop!Pop! is a catalyst for unity, fostering a harmonious fusion of people both on and off the stage. Every note they play, every performance they deliver, is a testament to their unwavering dedication to crafting an inclusive and welcoming space. Together, they amplify the vivacious spirit of pop music, nurturing a profound sense of togetherness that transcends barriers and defies convention.

Anita Jackson is a native of St. Louis, Missouri who returned home after living in New York City for twelve years. She is a graduate of the American Music and Dramatic Academy in New York and has performed extensively nationally and internationally in theater productions, concerts and workshops. She has recorded and performed as a background vocalist for several artists in the music industry, including Bette Midler, Patti Ausin, Mariah Carey and many others.

Jackson accepted a fellowship as a resident artist with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation (KAF) as a featured jazz performance and recording artist in 2018, releasing a jazz compilation EP with her fellow KAF artists-in-residence from the Dark Room series at the Grandel with her own original composition called “Your Time,” written with Phillip Graves, Joshua Crump and Jeff Taylor.
