About The Bemus Bay Pops Concert Series



The Early Days of the Pops ......


The Bemus Bay Pops is a series of outdoor concert

events of historic proportions, featuring world-class

musicians from the Chautauqua Region as well as

national acts featured on our Floating Stage on the

splendid Chautauqua Lake . Every weekend all

summer long we provide a variety of entertainment

such as music concerts including classical, swing,

jazz, Country and modern.  During the weekdays

throughout the summer we have events like the

Lake Night at the Movies, hilarious comedy troupes,

and so much more!


A creation of Dan and Sue Dalpra, owners of the

Italian Fisherman Restaurant in Bemus Point, NY.

They wanted to celebrate Labor Day by having the

Bemus Bay Pops Orchestra perform a concert on

the roof of the Italian Fisherman.


In 1998, the inaugural year of the event, they had
great success as they attracted an estimated 4,000
people who gathered for the concert on the lawns,
decks and water of the Bemus Bay.


The Pops performed a wonderfully diverse program

featuring works from Gershwin, Strauss, Sousa and

The Beatles.


In 2003 the summer concert season was expanded

and instead of just one major concert which took place
on Labor Day, the Bemus Bay Pops summer concert
series extended to concert performances Saturdays
and Sundays with the new addition of the Floating Stage
concert venue.
