Free concert to honor veterans, military and first responders

To mark Memorial Day, the Philly POPS are putting on a gratis show, and enlisting adult and student choruses to join them. Expect a line-up of patriotic anthems, songbook classics and showtunes — think "America the Beautiful" and "Someone to Watch Over Me." Reserve your free tix online, then pick them up after 5 p.m. at the venue.

Where: Mann Center at 5201 Parkside Ave.

When: May 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

How much: Free
