Parking is expensive. You just have to accept it; it's Boston.

I wore a dressy dress and my fellow was in a suit and tie. It's fun to dress up but not necessary. Very casual is not recommended, after all Symphony Hall is special..

Boston Pops Family Concert primarily Gershwin but had one Mozart Concerto because clarinet soloist was Teen BSO Concerto award winner.

Excellent concert, All performers excellent. Rhapsody in Blue enthralling and very glad we were sitting on...continued

Description

Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops will celebrate the music of one of the great innovators of the American Songbook, George Gershwin. The Gershwin Spectacular program will include a performance of Rhapsody in Blue featuring pianist Michael Chertock and Promenade: Walking the Dog featuring Pops principal clarinetist Thomas Martin. The second installment of the three-part Pops program will feature music from the classic Gene Kelly/Leslie Caron film An American in Paris. This “Symphonic Night at the Movies” will feature footage from the film alongside George Gershwin’s unforgettable orchestral score. After a short intermission, the third set will feature members of the Boston Conservatory Theater Division in such Gershwin classics as I Got Rhythm, Somebody Loves Me, and Embraceable You.
