On May 28, the Philly Pops will perform a “Memorial Salute” concert at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, in what is being billed as the first major Memorial Day concert in Philadelphia. Music Director Michael Krajewski will lead the event, which will also feature Voices of the Pops, the orchestra’s regular chorus, and vocal soloists Allison Blackwell and Hugh Panaro. Free tickets will be distributed to 2,000 military members, veterans, police, firefighters, and other first responders, with additional tickets distributed to Philadelphia schoolchildren and Boy and Girl Scouts. Said Philly Pops President and CEO Frank Giordano, “It’s time that Philadelphia honored our nation’s protectors with an inspirational, large-scale event, as our neighbor, Washington, D.C., does.”
