The Philly POPS presents the second annual ComcastNBCUniversal Memorial Salute at the Mann, a community concert honoring the American tradition of service on Saturday, May 27 at 7pm during Memorial Day weekend. In celebration of those who serve, all tickets to the concert will be provided free of charge. Particular blocks of tickets will be provided for veterans, active military, Philadelphia police officers, and firefighters – plus local students and Boy and Girl Scouts.
Led by Maestro Larry Blank, Memorial Salute features the 65-piece POPS orchestra, Broadway stars Christina Saffran and Philly-native Hugh Panaro, the Voices of the POPS, and Festival Chorus in a stirring line-up of patriotic anthems, Great American Songbook classics, and legendary showtunes, including:
"Someone to Watch Over Me"
"Salute to the Armed Forces"
"Bring Him Home"
"Hymn To The Fallen" from Saving Private Ryan
"America The Beautiful"
Choirs from high schools in the POPS in Schools program will supplement the Festival Chorus, providing a 500-strong choral presentation for “Hymn To The Fallen” from Saving Private Ryan, and “One Song” by Marvin Hamlisch.
