Boston Pops on Nantucket

August 12, 2023

Since 1997, the Boston Pops on Nantucket has been the island’s largest fundraiser, bringing together thousands of community members for a night of unparalleled entertainment to support Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The event made a triumphant return to Jetties Beach last year after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. Long-time summer residents and hospital supporters, Doug and Anne Marie Bratton, will co-chair this year’s event, saying “we are honored to be co-hosting Nantucket’s most beloved summer event which provides such critical support to the island’s only hospital.”

Conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops on Tour will be joined by Tony Award- and Grammy Award-nominated artist Michael Cavanaugh, who will perform the music of Elton John and more. Cavanaugh became famous when he was hand-picked by Billy Joel to star in the Broadway musical Movin’ Out. He has since been called “The New Voice of the American Rock and Roll Songbook” by Billboard and the “Entertainer of the Year” by Reuters. Scroll down to purchase General Admission tickets.

25th Anniversary Recap

The 25th anniversary of the Boston Pops on Nantucket concert was unlike anything the island has seen before. In the first of its kind on Nantucket, a high-tech drone light show surprised the audience as the orchestra played the 1812 Overture.
