The Philadelphia Pops to End Current Season


The Philly Pops are retiring at the end of the season. The annual variety show has been running for decades. A Christmas show will happen next year, music director David Charles Abell says. It’s unclear if Philadelphia will have a pops ensemble the rest of next season. The Philly Pops performed “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays,” “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” and “Grown-Up Christmas List”. This year’s show included an arrangement of Stephen K. Hand’s “Do You Hear What I Hear?”.
