Boston Pops kick off holiday performances

BOSTON (WHDH) - ‘Tis the season: the Boston Pops’ kicked off their holiday performances Wednesday night, launching into a month of concerts at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

The Pops have 44 concerts planned between Dec. 1-Dec. 24, with ticket prices ranging from $32 for second balcony seating to $143 for floor table-seating in front of the orchestra, according to the BSO website. Renowned Conductor Keith Lockhart will lead the orchestra shows.

Mayor Marty Walsh helped audience members get into the spirit on opening night by reading the classic “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

BSO will host seven special family concerts that include sing-along holiday tunes and photographs with Santa. Those with tickets to the family concerts can bring children younger than two years old for free.
