BOSTON (WHDH) – This year’s Boston Pops show will feature an all-female lineup of headliners.
The concert and fireworks show is always a spectacular event and this year’s lineup suggests it will be another amazing experience at the 2018 Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular on the Esplanade, with acts raging from the Indigo Girls to Newton native Rachel Platte.
The legendary Rita Moreno will also grace the stage, singing her classics from West Side Story and helping to celebrate the contribution of immigrants to America.
“Rita is going to narrate a piece called, “Ellis Island: The Dream of America,” in which she will read the words of some immigrants of the Ellis Island time frame,” Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart said.
Bloomberg Television and 7News are teaming up to bring the show to millions of viewers watching on television and online.
There will be an alternative viewing site on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway where people can watch the performance on a giant screen.
A dress rehearsal of the performance scheduled to take place Tuesday night, minus the fireworks, is open to the public.
