We got an excellent deal on tickets through a Cyber Monday deal. When I made a mistake with the purchase, the ticket office was AMAZING to deal with. So pleasant. The performance was top notch!

BSO is always super excellent. Any seats you sit you can see the stage very well/ You can absolutely expect world class music every time you go there. It is so worth seeing BSO when you visit Boston!

The Boston Pops Swing Band presents a two hour concert featuring the arrangements of the Big Band Greats plus a smattering of hits from the 60's - 80's. A dance floor is provided on the main floor which any ticket holder may use. It's a really fun night with the ladies dressed in cocktail finery and gentlemen in suits or... More

Symphony hall was transformed into a "night club" setting with all the seats removed and replaced by tables and chairs. One could order snacks and drinks before and during the performance. Keith Lockhart and the orchestra presented a program of classical and popular holiday music. The selections were pleasing to young and old in the crowd. The visit of Santa... More

A magnificent orchestra and festive program in a beautiful setting. The Tanglewood Orchestra really does a fabulous job. Can't wait for next year!

The Christmas music was outstanding. The view from my seat was very good. A very memorable evening.The stairs were a bit tricky to manuever, as we were in the balcony, but it was worth it. The acoustics were excellent!
