2020 Season

In an abundance of caution, we have removed all in-person July performances from our schedule.  If possible, we will arrange replacement performances later in the year.

The Pops! is excited to announce our first ever television broadcast performance on July 4th.  We will perform a live concert on community access channel AMP (Comcast channel 24 and streaming on our website.)

The Monterey County Pops! has a rich performance schedule planned for 2020.   We offer two formats:  the school residency and the public performance.  Both are, as always, free for the schools and community.

There is a free community concert with the Pops! performing together with the students after each school residency.

Unfortunately, the Covid19 pandemic forced the Monterey County Pops! to cancel the indicated performances.
