Fodor's Review

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, 40 festive holiday season concerts. Outdoor concerts on July 3 and 4 at the Hatch Memorial Shell are followed by concerts at Boston Symphony Orchestra's summer home, Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts, in July and August. The free outdoor concerts are packed; be sure to arrive early with blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic.
