How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Took my mother with me and we were both Pops virgins. I thought the show was great and actually LEARNED something! (Sleighride was written for Arthur Fiedler!) But I thought there was too much reliance on the chorus from Tanglewood. Even Sleighride had to be toned down from the version I love so much to accommodate the unnecessary voices. Symphony Hall is gorgeous and the lighting really made it more beautiful. The guest vocalist, Gabrielle Goodman, also had a beautiful voice...someone I will investigate further.
