Going to any POPS event at anytime is always special. My family and I wish we could make more visits to see them.

Great Show! Was able to enjoy the Boston Pops Christmas Show last year featuring Kristen Chenoweth. The music was outstanding and the venue was intriguing. Would definitely recommend this show and am looking forward to returning again.

Take your friends and family, grab a sandwich and a good drink, and let yourself enjoy the good music and atmosphere around. It is perfect for all- young couples, families with friends and older people

Most recently I got to full fill a life long bucket list item and see John Williams Conduct a Film Night ft various scores he wrote throughout his unbelievable career. When booking don't let the pictures online fool you, while large, symphony hall is still very intimate. I... More

I really thought this would be a waste of time. I enjoyed it ! The actors do a great job, even getting the kids involved. I think we all learned something.
