The Jackson Symphony Orchestra presents our annual summer pops concert: Heroes and Heroines

 (August 24, 2022) - JSO Kicks off season 73 with free annual pops concert in the park JACKSON, Michigan - The JSO proudly continues its 40 year-old tradition of summer pops concerts with Heroes and Heroines, a performance honoring both fictional and real heroes through iconic music.

The first half of the concert features themes from Superman, Spiderman, Black Panther and other heroes from the comic books and movies you know and love. The second half of the performance honors real-life heroes like the veterans in our community with epic music.


This free concert will take place in Horace Blackman Park on Friday, August 26th at 7 pm alongside the Cruise In which features classic cars on display. Downtown will be bustling with concertgoers, food trucks, vintage vehicles, and even a few caped crusaders. The JSO encourages anyone who would like to wear their military uniform or a hero costume to do so. If you're interested in special seating, you can purchase a VIP ticket from the JSO for $30. This gets you prime seating, one drink ticket for the performance, and a pre-concert party across the street at Weatherwax Hall starting at 6 pm. Those who don't wish to purchase tickets can bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit and enjoy the show for free.
