The Boston Pops on Tour
The iconic Boston Pops, under the masterful direction of Keith Lockhart, arrives at NJPAC’s Prudential Hall with a sparkling holiday celebration.
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. The ensemble is featured regularly on the PBS series Evening at Pops, which attracts a cumulative audience of nearly 40 million viewers each season. The Boston Pops also reaches listeners via a GRAMMY-nominated discography of more than 100 acclaimed recordings.
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.
For their welcome return to NJPAC, Lockhart and company arrive with a high-spirited holiday program of best-loved songs of the season, drawing from a repertoire that includes their peerless renditions of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” and many more.
NICO Kitchen + Bar will be open for this performance.
