“Great Orchestra, great sound, a bit of history”

Boston Symphony Orchestra
Ranked #4 of 47 Concerts & Shows in Boston
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Boston Symphony Orchestra is world class, and visitors to Boston should get tickets to hear a performance if they can. The acoustics in Symphony Hall are renowned, but there is nothing like sitting there and being electrified when your hear the first sounds of the Symphony orchestra in this classic hall. Looking around at the classsic statuary and the nineteenth century layout of the hall and adjoining rooms, you feel part of this wonderful, cultured, Boston institution.

We had a great time at the 4th of July Boston Pops show. We couldn't see the fireworks from where we had to be to see the orchestra but the music was great. I especially love the choral backup group.

Orchestra excellent.... Not so keen on choir. The conductor led the singing and this was not ideal...

Saw them for the 4th and it was just Wow! We figured nothing could be cooler than getting to see this American tradition for the 4th of July and we were right, it was worth the wait.
