The Salt Lake Pops Quartet is the ambassador ensemble of the larger, similarly named, SALT LAKE POPS ORCHESTRA: a 50 piece YouTube sensation whose videos have garnered over a million views. The orchestra fuses classic instruments with modern technology; and is sometimes called the “i-pad orchestra” because of the director’s penchant for swapping out fingerboards with electronic tablets.

They’re shown here on the red carpet. From left to right they are: Nicole Marriott (oboe), Kerstin Tenney (violin), Jarom Xochimitl (cello) and Jason Kelly (guitar).
