I have been a Boston Pops fan since I was a kid, and I finally got a chance to see them at Symphony Hall for the annual Christmas concert. It was great and wholly entertaining. If you get a chance to hear them and you want something a little lighter than the Boston Symphony's' or the Handel and Haydn Society... More

Our hotel was on the Cambridge side, so we walked down to the river area and put out a blanket to listen to the Boston Pops and see the fireworks, which had to be held July 3, due to Hurricane Arthur's imminent approach. Music was excellent, and even though I was disappointed they had to forego the 1812 Overture because... More

The concert was wonderful. A whole night with John Williams and music from his films. I couldn't have asked for a better concert. They did 3 encores for us, and we would have gladly sat for more. The only drawback is the price for food. We had Chicken salad sandwiches, hummus/crackers & olives, 4 macaroons and a pitcher of tea... More

Had a table in the stalls where we could order food and drink. It came very quickly and efficiently but beware, - the sandwiches are enormous and we could hardly finish them. Great music augmented by a British regimental band and The Hot Sardines Group up from New York who were exceptional and held our attention throughout. Obviously there are... More

I really shouldn't have to comment on the music because it's the Boston Pops, for heaven's sake. It was as brilliant as I had imagined and expected. I will comment on the "experience". We were seated at a table with chairs all around. Reminded me of a comedy club type seating. I did not expect that. I don't know if... More

My company booked a special event which I attended with my daughter who went not being very excited. By the time it was over I think she would tell you she had a better time than I did. If you enjoy music, this is for you. From start to finish we were spellbound by the beauty of what we were... More

Whether you see the Pops at Symphony Hall, on the Esplanade or out at Tanglewood they will not disappoint. They are always fun and the crowd brings the energy to a new level.
