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.
2019 Victory Day Concert
Monday, August 12th, 2019 / 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Join your Ocean State Pops Orchestra for a sunset concert on the beach, as we perform for the very first time at the Cold Spring Music Shell at the North Kingstown Town Beach. This Victory Day concert will be a rousing Salute to America, with a night of classics, including marches, patriotic pieces, the music of the 1940', and feel-good favorites.
The concert will conclude with Tchaikovsky’s famous 1812 Overture.
- Don't forget to bring a lawn chair or blanket and bug repellent.
- Parking is limited, and carpooling is highly recommended. Parking at the nearby high school and walking to the beach is an option for those who are able.
- The 1812 Overture includes canon fire, which will be loud. Plan your seating location accordingly!
This concert is free to the public, but your donations on concert night will help to defray the significant costs that are incurred to bring orchestral music to the community.
Your generous contributions are vital to the continuance of concert and educational activities, and represents an investment in your own community. Through your participation, you can help ensure the endurance of a quality tradition that everyone in the community can enjoy!
