The Philly POPS presents the third annual Comcast NBCUniversal Memorial Salute at the Mann, a community concert honoring the American tradition of service on Saturday, May 26th over Memorial Day weekend. 


In celebration of those who serve, all tickets to the concert will be provided FREE of charge. Particular blocks of seats will be provided for veterans, active military, Philadelphia police officers, and firefighters - plus local students and Boy and Girl Scouts.


Led by Maestro Todd Ellison, Memorial Salute features the 65-piece POPS orchestra and the Voices of the POPS in a stirring line-up of patriotic anthems, Great American Songbook classics, and legendary show tunes. Broadway's Nikki Renée Daniels will take the night off from her starring role in the Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon to sing with the POPS as guest vocalist. Philly native and POPS favorite guest artist Justin Hopkins brings his powerful, moving voice back to the stage after starring in 2017's POPS Christmas concerts.

Please bring this voucher with you (or have available on your mobile device) to the Mann on May 26th. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis within Sections B, C, Terrace, and Lawn (general admission). For groups of 20 or more, please call (215) 253-6980.
