The Pops are wonderful at any time but don't miss the Christmas Pops. And of course, the July 4th concert is legendary.

The hall is very historical, beautiful and has the typical european atmosphere. I like BSO because, whereas the hall is classy but the music they play is something you are familiar with and overall atmosphere becomes friendly.

This is a wonderful night out. The food is a little lacking for such an amazing atmosphere, but you forget about that quickly. Highly recommended for a special date night! Especially if you can catch John Williams.

Previous conductors include the legendary Arthur Fiedler, John Williams and the father-in-law of former Governor Michael Dukakis, Harry Ellis Dickson.... More

Have been to see the Pops for Chistmas several years in a row, and done the sing-a-long with Santa at the end. LOVED it. The hall is gorgeous and reconditioned, and if you can afford the tickets, go for the seats up at thge tables in front. You may arrive feeling like the Grinch, but you will leave full of... More

Great way to add a new mix to New Years celebrations! Great performance as well as opportunity to show your best moves on the dance floor. As usual, great music and atmosphere in iconic Symphony Hall. A great way to start 2014!
