Together in Spirit

A Tribute to the Heroes Among Us

Stay tuned for details on the 2021 Boston Pops on Nantucket on August 14, 2021. Watch last year’s celebratory broadcast in its entirety below.


Extraordinary times offered us an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the heart of Nantucket. For 24 years our community has come together on Jetties Beach to support Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The 2020 program featured previous musical performances by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra as well as a newly created virtual piece and a pre-recorded fireworks display. The 45-minute show also featured Nantucket musicians as well as special video messages honoring the heroes among us.
