The Philly POPS presents the sixth annual Comcast NBCUniversal Memorial Salute at the Mann, presented in partnership with Welcome America—a community concert honoring the American tradition of service, on Friday, May 27 over Memorial Day weekend. In celebration of those who serve, free tickets will be provided for veterans, active military, Philadelphia police officers, and firefighters. Led by guest conductor Byron Stripling, the POPS will perform a stirring line-up of patriotic anthems, Great American Songbook classics, and showtunes, with guest vocalist Sydney McSweeney and violinist Jennifer Orchard. Favorites include “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Hymn to the Fallen,” and “America the Beautiful,” along with the popular “Armed Forces Salute.” End the evening under the stars with a special fireworks display! Special ticket links will be available through affiliated bases and organizations for veteran, military, police, firefighter, and first responder groups. Tickets are now available to the general public. Comcast NBCUniversal is the Presenting Sponsor of The Philly POPS Salute Series. This performance is presented in partnership with Welcome America. These free celebrations of community and tradition, which honor our shared commitment to service on holidays of American tradition, also rely on the generous support of Major Sponsors Bank of America, and Archer Law, as well as grants through partnership with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia.
