The iconic Boston Pops, under the masterful direction of Keith Lockhart, return to NJPAC with a sparkling holiday celebration.

Parking their reindeer on the roof of Prudential Hall, Lockhart and company will unpack a sleigh full of best-loved seasonal songs, including “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride” and many more.

Since its founding in 1885, the Boston Pops has become one of America’s most beloved musical institutions, known for a rousing repertoire of light classical, Broadway show tunes, film score classics, American standards and patriotic songs.

Currently in his 24th season with the Boston Pops, conductor Keith Lockhart has led over 1,900 Boston Pops concerts (including performances at Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall) as well as 79 television performances, including dozens of new programs for Evening at Pops, and the annual July Fourth spectacular, broadcast nationally for many years.
