Led by Principal 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.
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.
