Where to listen to the Boston Pops

I am planning on hearing the "free" Boston Pops rehearsal in July 3rd. Question - can you hear the music across the river on the Cambridge side? If it to crowded in the Esplanade, is there a better place to hear? Thanks

Never to crowded, just plain old crowded. Listen from the Esplanade.

I don't believe the speakers are set up on July 3 on the Cambridge side of the river.

If you just want to hear the music but are ok with not necessarily seeing the Hatch Shell, there are areas to sit that aren't right in the oval area.

Now, that the 4th will not be televised nationally, I am guessing that will be a bit easier to see and hear the rehearsal on the 3rd. There are no big headliners this year, that is what brought in the crowds for the rehearsal.
