Pops in the Park

Appropriate for all ages

To set the tone for an exciting 2019-20 season, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, in association with the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks, presents the widely popular Pops in the Park concert. This free annual Labor Day Weekend concert will take place at Quiet Waters Park on Sunday, September 1, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.with a rain date of Monday, September 2, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

Renowned Music Director José-Luis Novo, who is marking his fifteenth year with the Symphony, has prepared an exciting program of music that will hype the upcoming Masterworks Series titled “Beethoven Discovers America”. Patrons will get a “sneak peek” at the music of Beethoven as we celebrate the 250thanniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth in 1770.  This year’s Pops in the Parkprogram is titled “Sounds of Americana” and “will feature works by Beethoven, of course, but also selections from composers on whom Beethoven had major influence.”
