Boston Pops for Nantucket
Safely gather with family and friends on Saturday, August 14th at 8 p.m. for a free televised special on NCTV Channel 18, the Best of the Beach, in celebration of previous year’s Boston Pops on Nantucket concerts. The program will feature a compilation of our favorite songs from the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra performing with Kenny Loggins in 2016, a selection from RAIN, the Beatles tribute band, from 2018, as well as performances from The Spinners who joined the orchestra at Jetties Beach in 2019.
“With the difficult news of The Pops cancellation this year, we wanted to give the community something we can all rally around in celebration of Nantucket Cottage Hospital as we look back at some of our best performances,” said Gary Shaw, President and CEO of Nantucket Cottage Hospital. “The Best of the Beach is just that, an opportunity for our community to get together in our homes, for an event highlighting the spirit of inclusivity and celebration that The Pops brings to Nantucket year after year.”
Presented by White Elephant Resorts, Jill and Stephen Karp, and sponsored by Fidelity Investments, the Best of the Beach telecast will air on Nantucket Community Television Channel 18 at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 14th.
