Under ordinary circumstances, ticket sales do not support the full expense of our orchestra, our programs and the extraordinary artists that we bring to each POPS concert. Programs like POPS In Schools and POPS In Schools@HOME are completely supported by donations. The Salute Series, celebrations of civic traditions free to the public, is also exclusively supported by fundraising. Now, in these difficult times, our need for support is even deeper.
There is a new normal for a POPS event. Always, our main concern is the health and safety of our patrons, our musicians, and our staff. While carefully outlined measures for safety are in development for any upcoming event, there will be those patrons who are more comfortable not attending. If you find yourself wondering, please consider a donation of your ticket to the POPS Support Fund. The Philly POPS is working to provide a streaming option for each of its upcoming programs—an option exclusively available to ticket purchasers and to those who donate the value of their ticket. The donation itself is tax deductible.
To donate the value of your ticket to POPS SUPPORT, please contact Kelly McMurtry, Contributed Revenue Associate & Events Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
