"Just wanted to let you know, as soon as I returned home from the concert, that the audience was screaming for the King of Pop. Everyone loved it. It was a challenging piece to play and really fun too. Never boring, just really well written and everyone went nuts for it. You should have heard the crowd.....wow.....No problems with any parts. Just really bookin'."

“Victor Vanacore worked with us in Charlotte and I recommend him without reservation. His charts were just what we needed. Highly cinematic. He gets it. Drop the light classical and give Victor a test drive. His charts are excellent and the addition of his conducting adds a spark to the evening. Our most complete pops show in years.

After the Vanacore show there was a buzz outside the hall. Board members remarked that friends were contacting them about what a great evening they had and how exciting the orchestra sounded.

Victor’s understanding and insights into the cinematic use of orchestration breathes life and excitement into the the concert hall, audiences and players alike.

His charts are genuine, hip, cool and draw the audience into the show and empower the orchestra to entertain across the lights.

This is the sound of the American Pops Orchestra as it should be heard in the 21st century.

Real estate is location, locaton, location. Orchestra Pops is presentation, presentation, presentation. Victor Vanacore’s arrangements present the orchestra in a fresh, effective, enthusiastic, authentically creative palette of variations and colors."

"Victor Vanacore is one of the most innovative and commanding symphonic arrangers I have seen in a long, long time. He understands the needs of the pops orchestra and writes brilliant and creative arrangements for every type of concert setting. Every time I listen to one of his arrangements I am struck by how unique and colorful his work is. All orchestras should know about him!"

"The Lansing Symphony was fortunate to have Victor Vanacore and his Hot Hot Hot Pops show as part of our 2008-2009 season. The arrangements were outstanding, authentic, entertaining yet very playable for the orchestra."
