“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Pops are great. Symphony music in a popular way. We've seen them 3 times at our children's college for parents weekend and it's always a delightful show. Might be boring for younger children or those not interested in symphony type music.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Another fantastic performance by the Boston Pops on the Heights at Boston College. We enjoy this event every year. Special guest performers Harry Connick Jr. and Brandon Marsalis were an added bonus to an already wonderful evening. Way to go BC! We love the Pops.

“See them anywhere...they are super”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Whether on the esplanade on the July 4th extravaganza or in Symphony Hall in the spring, the Pops is a great musical experience. Led by the ever energetic Keith Lockhart, they have fun and share it with you.

“Best venue and orchestra in the world !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I always go to the Pops at Christmas time. The festive atmosphere combined with all my favorite Christmas songs is well worth the time and money to venture into the city. When Santa Claus shows up at the end of the evening it makes me feel like a little kid again :-)
