Under the agile baton of Keith Lockhart, Boston Pops (largely Boston Symphony musicians) perform a bracing blend of American standards, movie themes, and contemporary vocal numbers (with top-tier guests) during May and June at Symphony Hall, followed by outdoor concerts on July 3rd and 4th at the Hatch Memorial Shell. Performances also take place at Boston Symphony Orchestra's summer home, Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts, in July and August. The popular outdoor concerts
are free and packed; be sure to arrive early with blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic.
