The Pops Concerts were started in 1982 by the Livermore-Amador Symphony and presented annually for audiences to enjoy light classical symphonic and pops music in a casual setting.
For many years, the venue was the Barn in Livermore, then from 2010-19 Pops Concerts were held in the ballroom of the Robert Livermore Community Center. Themes have varied over the years with Halloween, Broadway hits, the Beatles, outer space, and heroes and villains to name a few.
Last year the concert was canceled because of COVID-19, and this year, with the pandemic lingering, it was decided to hold the event outdoors as an afternoon event.
This is the first time in 39 years that the concert will be alfresco, noted organizers, who also pointed out that many restaurants adjacent to the Bankhead Theater have outdoor seating where the concert could be enjoyed.
