Holiday Pops 2021 In Boston

Tradition returns to Symphony Hall! Rejoice as conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops return for a performance filled with holiday music favorites, the jubilant Pops sing-along, and a visit from Santa Claus himself!

Started in 1973 by Boston Pops Conductor Arthur Fiedler, these concerts take place in the magical atmosphere of world-famous Symphony Hall, beautifully decorated to evoke all the magic and charm of the season.

Kids’ matinee performances, geared toward younger children, are shorter in length, with no intermissions, and an opportunity for a post-concert visit with Santa, including special treats.

A sensory-friendly concert also returns on Sunday, December 5 at 10am. The show is designed for all families with children or adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or sensory sensitivities. This is a shortened 60-minute version of our standard Holiday Pops concert, with a flexible, non- judgmental environment. Modifications include relaxed house rules, reduced volume and lighting levels, extra space for movement, available noise- reduction headphones, designated quiet room and support spaces, modified food concessions, and credentialed autism therapist volunteers on site.

Due to the timings of the show, Boston Pops shows are best done on an overnight travel package.  Most show times will force a late train home or a very early train to Boston to catch the 11:00AM kid friendly show.
