My husband and I experienced The Boston Pops for the first time at Christmas. This was one of the most amazing experiences for us. We have visited a number of symphonies around the country and this one is first class.

What a great program. Truly entertaining. One of the most enjoyable experiences we have had. The Boston Pops played while Looney Tunes cartoon played on a big screen. Hope they do it again next year.

Went to opening night in 2017. The building is beautiful, and the music impressive. A terrific Christmas event. The Twelve Days of Christmas version was a show-stopper!
