Salute Series | The Philly Pops

Salute Series

The Philly POPS Salute Series encourages recognition of service and commitment through an expanding set of events and activities—each transformative moments of celebration for our community. Salute performances recognize the service and sacrifice of those dedicated to a collective identity of American values and tradition. 

Signature events include large-scale, free and low-cost performances on Memorial Day, July 3 on Independence Mall, July 4 at Philadelphia's Independence Day concert, and opening night of the POPS Christmas concert series in December 

The Salute Series engages with a series of partners ranging from the USO and the Philadelphia Police and Fire Departments to regional Veterans organizations, community centers and schools.
