“Boston Pops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

The Boston Pops is known as America's Orchestra and for good reason. Contemporary music in a spectacular hall. No matter where you sit the acoustics are near perfect . The best headphones cannot compare to hearing this orchestra LIVE. I've been going to Pops for many years and have never been disappointed.

A special treat is Christmas at Pops. The hall is beautifully decorated. There is also a sing-a-long and of course, Santa Claus makes an appearance. Tickets for a New Year's Eve concert make a wonderful Christmas gift.

You are not considered a Bostonian until you have attended a Pops concert!

“Film Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

My boyfriend and I went to a show in May, and they played all the movie themes and the second half featured Fantasia from Disney where the POPS played along with the film. A beautiful night. I hope to return in the future!

“WOW...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Was able to see them perform at the Boston College Boston Pops fundraiser Gala. They are so amazing to see and hear live. I grew up listening to them on the radio & TV, but to see it live was just amazing. It is definitely worth the price to see them live.

Brilliant performance of Gospel hymns, so much Soul, so much Suffering, so much Hope in every single song. Fantastic seats and bar service during intervals. Will vist again
