This holiday season I had an opportunity to go to the Boston Symphony Holiday Pops. It was an exquisite show, complete with classics and a few unexpected pieces. Going to the symphony always carries with it a sense of excitement and culture, but pair it with the magic of Christmastime, chilly air, on the arm of a good looking guy and it turns into a memorable evening.
One of the highlights of the evening was that they invited Boston Bruins hockey players each night to narrate “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” The league was on strike and it was an amusing intro to say the least. That paired with a few heartwarming sing alongs created an atomosphere of jolly holiday fun.
It may be important to note the seating in the hall is very crowded, with tables and chairs to accomodate full service. It’s a delight to be able to order champage throughout the night without waiting for intermission but I must say the food leaves a bit to be desired.
If you’re in town, this annual event is a must see. Take your kids, your loved ones, or even someone you don’t like because this show will brighten your day, make you smile, and put you in a holiday mood.
