The Boston Pops are celebrating their 136th Season this year, with Keith Lockhart entering his 28th year as esteemed conductor for the orchestra.

Holiday Pops began in 1973 led by Arthur Fiedler. It featured a three-concert series at Symphony Hall called “A Pops Christmas Party.” Ever since, the public demand for the performances has continued to grow and the season has expanded to include well over 30 performances each holiday season. In 1978, the fans were overjoyed with the orchestra beginning a new Christmastime tradition of bringing its unique Holiday Pops concerts to venues throughout New England and the Northeast.

The Boston Pops series of shows will begin on December 1st at Boston Symphony Hall with the last show taking place on December 24th.
