The 2019 Season

“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful poetic things to the heart.” ― Pablo Casals

Join the Ocean State Pops Orchestra for an inspirational and "divine" 19th season of spectacular music.

We have it all this season. Something for everyone.

Big Band and Broadway to Polkas and Patriotic Songs. Marches and Motown to Classical and Contemporary. Jazz and Jive to Swing and Show Music.

More diverse music from renowned composers and the celebrated American songbook than ever before – and every composition delivered with unfettered fervor from our hearts to yours.

A critical component of our orchestra is YOU – our audience! You make it all worthwhile, so please don’t miss a single performance!

Let our music touch and uplift you. Let us entertain and inspire you. Your applause moves us to perform from the depths of our hearts – and to give you more, season after season.

We love entertaining you!

Please join us for this exciting season – and be prepared for a few delightful "poetic" surprises along the way.
