Everything was great! It is truly a popular concert with a mix of classical and popular music in an old historical hall.

All I have to say is this - this is a great annual holiday tradition for the young and old - I would recommend the show to anyone!

We went to see the Holiday Pop 2014 while we were in Boston. The first half was ok, but we love the second half! It was full of humor and animation!

wonderful acoustics and great family event. Food at cabaret tables was disappointing but we were there for the musical experience. Next time would limit food purchases.

Didn't expect to relish this one as my first experience in an opera was terrible in Alabama...but I must say, I was shellshocked by the precision and stamina of the performers-every note so perfectly played!

Does anyone ever make it to these things on time??? We were worried that the Pops Police wouldn't seat us if we were late...but they were wonderful !! The Christmas Pops is a must see show. It conjures up wonderful memories of Christmas with a sing along in the end to boot. It really helps relieve the stress of Christmas...Go,... More

Unique mixture of classics and Christmas favourites, the singers, all volunteers apparently, were especially good, you've never heard a rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas like their's!

This was my first trip to the Symphony and the Holiday Pops was a perfect choice. It was filled with Christmas classics and the Maestro was quite the comedian! The choir did a fun version of 12 days of Christmas, would definitely recommend going to this show!
