Boston Pops Orchestra Tickets
The Boston Pops Orchestra was founded in 1885 as a subsection of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), founded four years earlier. Created to bring light classical music to the public, the first concert was performed in 1885. Their performances combine classical music, current hits of the musical theatre, and an occasional novelty number.
With the leadership of Star Wars composer John Williams beginning in 1980, the Boston Pops began their tradition of making classical music accessible and fun. Since then, the Pops have presented an eclectic, marvelously entertaining selection of programming including appearances from such musical guests as Aerosmith, Rockapella, and Amanda Palmer.
