Boston Pops Holiday Concert
- The show’s history: A tradition as holly-jolly as hanging stockings above the fireplace or covering your roof with reindeer food, the Boston Pops’ holiday concert first began in 1973, when it was called A Pops Christmas Party.
- The sounds: Conductor Keith Lockhart and the world-famous orchestra carry on the cheer by playing their way through another year of pop and classical holiday favorites.
- Something old and something new: Updated arrangements of seasonal tunes dot the program, but the finale—an appearance by the big man in a red suit followed by a sing-along—is as old-school as it gets.
About Boston Pops
Sometimes called “America’s Orchestra,” the Boston Pops celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2010—a mighty accomplishment for any organization, but one of many epic milestones in the Pops’ life. The most recorded orchestra in history, the Pops began as a way for Boston Symphony Orchestra founder and Civil War veteran Henry Lee Higginson to keep his musicians employed year-round. Playing light concerts of popular music and beloved classics, the orchestra grew to be a national institution: the Evening at Pops television series brought its music into living rooms across the country, its Holiday and Independence Day concerts became seasonal traditions, and it has played at the White House and Statue of Liberty.
