EDUCATE, ENTERTAIN, AND INSPIRE

Welcome to the home of the Ocean State Summer Pops Orchestra, one of Rhode Island's cultural gems.

The Ocean State Summer Pops Orchestra is committed to educate, entertain, and inspire through music, and delivers orchestral and educational programming throughout the communities of Greater Rhode Island.

The Orchestra’s summer concert season begins in July and ends at Labor Day, and our repertoire includes a broad variety of light classical pieces, as well as movie and show music, marches, and other pops-style selections.

Performance locations are varied, and have included city, town, and corporate-sponsored events, churches, private concerts, regional and national conventions, retirement facilities, fireworks displays, and other venues.

Smaller instrumental ensembles are also available for special events.

St. Ann Arts & Cultural Center
84 Cumberland St., Woonsocket, RI

The dazzling Renaissance-style St. Ann Arts and Cultural Center is home to North America's largest collection of frescos, and may be "as close as any visitor to Woonsocket can get to heaven on earth".

In 2011, Yankee Magazine called St. Ann's
"The Sistine Chapel of America", voted it
"The Best of New England", and said "The walls, vaults and ceilings of this church are covered in frescos beautiful enough to convert an atheist."
