The 2021 Season
“Music can change the world.” - Beethoven
The Ocean State Pops Orchestra is thrilled to announce WE ARE BACK and ready to play for you this summer and fall!
While our instruments and our concert schedule were taking a breather, we’ve been getting vaccinated and planning our 2021 season.
By following all the recommended Covid safety protocols, Ocean State Pops Orchestra members can rehearse together again. Venues are opening up and music lovers are lining up to hear live music performed in all its soul-stirring, world-changing glory.
We’re excited to be playing music again and invite you to attend all our performances, starting with our annual free concert at North Kingstown Town Beach in August.
See our complete listing of 2021 concerts below.
