RWP Pops at the Temple of Music


If history serves as a good memory, the delightful midweek free concert by the RI Philharmonic will be another wonderful evening to enjoy family, friends, music, food, and camaraderie under the stars. The weather looks great for Wednesday’s (Aug7th) free at the Temple to Music in Roger Williams Park from 7 to 9pm.


The concert is made possible by the support of the City of Providence and the Rhode Island Foundation. RWP Pops at Roger Williams is free & open to the public. Rain date is Aug. 8th.  

Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy rousing favorites led by the Philharmonic’s resident conductor Francisco Noya. The 60-piece orchestra will play two 45-minute sets with a 20-minute intermission. The program is expected to include rousing standards, including the Star Spangled Banner, the 1812 Overture, and many more.

Come early and enjoy all the activities that RWP has to offer.

Bring snacks with you (no alcohol) or enjoy food from a dozen Food Trucks at the Temple to Music.
