The 2020 Season

“Music…will help dissolve your perplexities…and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

COVID-19 Impact on the 2020 Season

The Ocean State Pops Orchestra has been forced to cancel our planned 2020 Summer Season, which includes concerts scheduled for June, July and August. Like you, the Orchestra and our concert and rehearsal venues are following public health precautions and guidelines pertaining to physical distancing and crowd size to stem the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus.

Optimistically, we are planning to perform two Holiday Pops concerts in November and December. The dates and locations for these two concerts are listed below. Please check back regularly for updates.

Since music moves the soul, soothes the mind, captivates the heart, and engages the body, we encourage you to absorb as much music as you can during this trying time. Listen. Play. Sing. Dance. We’ll catch you on the other side of this pandemic – ready to perform with more energy and gusto than ever before!

We acknowledge the selfless individuals on the frontlines of this pandemic – working the supply chain; grocery stores and pharmacies staffs; emergency responders; medical and public health professionals; volunteers distributing food, making masks, and looking in on their neighbors; and so many others. We salute and applaud you all.

Take care, stay well. Let music be your mainstay. It certainly will be ours.
