“A grand traditon that never fails to please”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The Boston Pops is a tradition that never grows stale. The quality of playing with members drawn from the Boston Symphony is world class. The programs are a mix of classical and popular music that strikes an ideal balance. On our latest visit music from the movies was the theme and a sequence from Pixar films had accompanying film clips. Seating on the floor is at tables for five with drink and snacks served by the wait staff. Everyone seemed to leave with a smile on his face. This is an attraction that should not be missed during their Spring and early Summer season. There is also a brief run as Christmas Pops.

“Great Performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

John Williams directed and orchestra played many of his movie scores. A wonderful experience. Only dislike is the way the audience is "packed in" with no knee room.

“World Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Folks, Symphony Hall is one of the great acoustic venues in the world. The Boston Pops, a sub-set of the Boston Symphony is one of the five greatest orchestras in America. If you can get there -- just go. Hang the price, just go!
