Pops in the Park 1997
Pops in the Park is a Labor Day weekend tradition in Raleigh featuring the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra. This year’s concert brought thousands of area music lovers to Meredith College to watch Raleigh’s own Lauren Kennedy, and Tony-nominee Alan Campbell perform selections from Phantom of the Opera, Damn Yankees and Evita with the Symphony Orchestra leading up to the grand finale of the 1812 Overture and a fireworks display.
WRAL-TV and WRAL-FM were among the sponsors of this year’s concert in the park. This was the 17th year that WRAL-TV televised the concert.
