Pop Up! Concert Series

Pop Up!’s are free, (typically) outdoor concert events about 45-60 minutes in length, performed at various locations, dates, and times. Each concert features a small ensemble of up to 5 professional symphony musicians. These informal and accessible public settings allow residents and visitors alike to enjoy more personal experiences with music and  musicians. At outdoor locations, attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets; families are encouraged to come with small children. Passersby can stop and listen, even if only for a few minutes.

Thank you 2024 sponsors!

For 2024, Pop Up! concert opportunities are based on partnerships and funding secured through grant awards and/or sponsorship – allowing us to extend the season of opportunities.  We are very grateful to this year’s partners, sponsors, and grant committees for helping our Pop Up! series grow!
