    The Reading Pops Orchestra has been a big part of the Boscov's Berks Jazz fest for many years, performing with many major artists, including the New York Voices, Chuck Mangione, Jim Brickman, Ramsey Lewis, Dianne Schurr, Rick Braun, and others.
    This year, the Reading Pops, under the direction of Dr. Willis Rapp, photo at right, will be collaborating with an all-star ensemble featuring David Benoit (photo at right) on piano, Chuck Loeb on guitar, Brian Bromberg on bass, and Eric Marienthal on saxophone.
    Not only will the four special guest artists will be part of the Pops' rhythm section for the entire program, they each will contribute orchestra charts for the concerts set for Saturday, April 13, 7 p.m., and Sunday, April 14, 3 p.m., at the Miller Center for the Arts.
    "This will be a first," said Brian Bromberg. "As artists, having the opportunity to perform with the Reading Pops Orchestra is very special. Having the opportunity to work with the other special guests and the Pops is very, very special."
    "David, Eric, Chuck and myself are really looking forward to collaborating with Will (Rapp) and the entire Reading Pops Orchestra."
