The Philly POPS continues its 40-year tradition of performance in front of Independence Hall in POPS on Independence. Featuring The Voices of the POPS and the full 65-piece POPS orchestra, this free, patriotic celebration of America's birthday is part of Wawa Welcome America, the nation's largest, free 4th of July festival.

With the stunning backdrop of Independence Hall, Music Director Todd Ellison will conduct the POPS in a patriotic show, mixing Great American Songbook classics with today’s popular music. POPS on Independence has become a Philadelphia tradition, enjoyed by 15,000 locals and visitors each year. 

The POPS will be joined by Disney Broadway sensation Susan Egan. Susan played Belle in the original Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast (for which she received Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations), was the voice of Megara in the movie Hercules, has appeared in many hit TV shows, and has released seven solo albums. POPS fans will remember Susan’s powerful, energetic performance in 2018’s Best of Broadway concert series.
