Have gone many times. Holiday pops are magical. Spring season is fantastic. 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.

The Pops are a Boston tradition and tickets can be hard to get. No matter where they play - Symphony Hall, Tanglewood, the Esplanade - the musicians are top notch, the music is fantastic, and you will want to see them again!

I brought my two teenaged daughters to a Pops concert. I enjoyed it; they did not. The Pops, of course, are outstanding. The concert space is wonderful, and if you sit on the floor, you can buy food and drinks. If you go, make sure you like orchestra music!

Saw John Williams conduct the Boston Pops in a night of film music. Stunning playing and the great man is a decent raconteur. Had to book the tickets ages in advance. Skip the food they try to sell you on the website, which was cardboard and poor value. The atmosphere and grounds are beautiful and we will never forget this... More

The Boston Pops are fantastic and always give wonderful performances. Get your tickets early as performances often sell out. Put this on your to do list while in Boston.

This was my first visit to the Boston Pops- ideally close to our hotel (within walking distance). A grand old institute. I was very surprised to walk in and see the orchestra area were set up with cafe tables and folding chairs. There were two upper balconies with regular seating, Available in the orchestra was a catering menu- drink specialties... More

It's a tradition in our family. Boston pops on 12/23 and Christmas service at Trinity Church 12/24. It's the children's pageant & after a magical evening with the Pops followed by the pageantry at Trinity Church our Christmas begins with warm and jolly hearts.
