The 65-piece Philly POPS orchestra bring back their annual Memorial Day tribute show, held at the open-air Mann Center for the Performing Arts. The 90-minute concert is a heart-swelling patriotic salute to our troops that features vocals by a handful of choirs and special guests Nikki Renée Daniels, of Broadway fame, and Philly-born opera star Justin Hopkins. Bring a little flag to wave as the POPS go through a songbook of patriotic anthems and Great American Songbook standards, such as “Summertime,” “Old Man River,” “Salute to the Armed Forces” and “My Country Tis of Thee.” The concert is absolutely free, but you have to register here.
