2020 Season

The Monterey County Pops! has suspended all residencies and performances as of March 14 during the ongoing Covid19 public health crisis.   We will resume and reschedule any missed performances once the crisis has passed, schools are reopened and the restriction on public gatherings is lifted.

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.
