Peninsula Singers is shaking up the Point Loma arts scene with its inaugural community concert series called “Peninsula Pops.”

“Peninsula Pops” is more than halfway through its first-ever season, with eight of its 15 performances still beckoning. There are still opportunities to catch the remaining performances at Liberty Station’s The North Chapel.

This eclectic season kicked off May 29 at 7 p.m. with a concert featuring new compositions by Point Loma Nazarene University’s composition music majors, performed by their student peers. Performers have included members of San Diego Symphony, singers from San Diego Opera, exceptional jazz ensembles, and world-renowned chamber-music en-sembles. Several spoken-word events have now been added to the musical performances.

General admission is $15; students, seniors and military $12.
