It took just 3 hours for the public to snap up all 1,600 tickets for tonight’s 1st-ever Staples High School Pops Concert.
And the crowd — old, young, Levitt Pavilion regulars and those who’ve never been to Westport’s riverside amphitheater — were not disappointed.
The orchestra, jazz band and choral groups — hundreds of very talented musicians — made this a (windy) night to remember.
Next year, the tickets will be snagged in a lot less than 3 hours.
Every inch of the Levitt Pavilion lawn was filled, as the Staples orchestra welcomed Westporters to the 1st-ever Pops Concert.
Emcee — and 2-time Tony Award winner — Jim Naughton took a turn on the triangle.
