Boston Pops Holiday Concert
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. 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, including their interpretation of “Sleigh Ride.” Joining them for the journey is the young bass-baritone Justin Hopkins and the Metropolitan Chorale of Brookline, who add their ethereal voices to the yuletide charm. New arrangements of seasonal tunes dot the program, but the finale—an appearance by the big man in red followed by a sing-a-long—is as traditional and cheery as it gets.<p>
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.<p>
