The Pops is a wonderful orchestra, of course. I would give the experience a five except that our seats were in a fairly noisy zone close to the doors in the back of the hall. Another thought: Is the Polar Express appropriate for an 8 p.m. concert...continued

I go to Holiday POPS every year and am never disappointed. Loved that I could sit at a table seat and have my supper while listening to the music.

It was a wonderful evening. The music, singing and setting was magical. I have gone five years in a row -- always a special holiday treat.

This event was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone in the Boston area for the holidays. The Boston Pops performs twice or three times each day from December 7-24 along with the Tanglewood Choir. All of the pieces were fantastic - very...continued

This performance was not nearly as good as last year's. The songs were boring and monotonous and definitely not worth the extreme price. The concert only lasts two hours (including intermission) though so it's a nice holiday event.

This was extemely well done. I had bought the tickets the day before and arrived somewhat late as well, but there was parking nearby and the staff was quick to get our tickets anf get us to our seats. We had a wonderful evening.

A great way to put some joy back into hearing Christmas carols, even if you're sick of them from the mall! I liked the mix of traditional carols, different arrangements, and less well-known songs. The chorus was great, as was the solo singer,...continued

Lots of fun. This is the best 12 Days of Christmas version in the world. Great to sing a long with an orchestra.

It was a perfect holiday outing. The setting was very fun with caberet setting and it was great to order food and wine. The concert was outstanding with tons of favorite carols and holiday songs - combining both secular and sacred music.

really fun - especially the inventive arrangement of "12 Days of Christmas", the classic "Sleigh Bells", and the readings with orchestra of "The Grinch" and "The Night Before Christmas."

Points off for the crowded floor seating and utter lack...continued

The atmosphere at Symphony was festive. The Pops and Tanglewood Chorus were fabulous. Wonderful, different arrangements of traditional carols and songs. The final singalong was a great pleasure. Well worth the cost and a discount was perfect. ...continued

As always, a magical event! The music was wonderful and the special guests (including Joey McIntyre) were very entertaining. My 21-year-old daughter, who had never seen the Pops, loved the show. I can't think of a better way to get into the...continued

I hadn't been to the Christmas pops since I was a child - it was as magical as I remembered it! Our front table seats were great.

OMG this was so much fun! My first time for this event and I want to return every year now. The Pops were phenomenal as always, and our server was so much fun too! I highly recommend this event.
