This special Labor Day Weekend concert is part of the Plymouth 400 Official Maritime Salute festivities. The Official Maritime Salute pays tribute to the Pilgrims’ journey on board the Mayflower from Plymouth, England, to the site of Plymouth Colony, originally Patuxet. A regatta of wooden ships, yachts, workboats, official vessels, and pleasure craft, maritime fanfare and marine programming will be part of the day’s festivities. This is a Free family-friendly concert featuring music for all ages to enjoy!
Concert highlights include an orchestral suite from Handel’s famous Water Music, vintage film music from Erich Korngold’s score to The Sea Hawk, and Sea Shanties sung by acclaimed baritone Philip Lima. In keeping with the maritime theme, the orchestra performs pirate-inspired music featuring Leroy Anderson’s Pirate Dance, the overture to Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic operetta The Pirates of Penzance, and a swashbuckling medley of music from the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and join us.
