In just 3 years, the Staples High School Pops Concert has become the town’s newest tradition.
And its hottest ticket.
This year’s event is set for Friday, June 8, at the Levitt Pavilion.
Free tickets will be available online at www.StaplesMusic.org this Monday (May 14), at 9 a.m. They’re first-come, first-served. For the past 2 years they’ve been snapped up almost instantly.
Like its wintertime cousin — Candlelight — the Pops Concert is a Staples music department gift to the town.
Modeled on Boston Pops’ famed Esplanade series, it features popular classical and contemporary music from the high school’s symphonic orchestra, band, jazz band and Orphenians.
It’s a chance to enjoy great music on the Levitt lawn, greet friends, picnic, and watch the stars of the future as the stars come out.
But first you need tickets. Mark your calendar: Monday, May 14, 9 a.m.!
(Pops festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. on June 8, with pre-concert musicians and food trucks. The concert starts at 7 p.m.)
