The BSO and the Boston Pops present a special free concert in Boston's Franklin Park
Boston Symphony Orchestra
On Sunday, October 1, at 3 p.m., the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops, in partnership with the City of Boston, will present a special free concert in Boston's Franklin Park.
Led by BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons, Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart, and BSO Youth and Family Concerts Conductor Thomas Wilkins, the outdoor concert marks the first time the BSO and the Boston Pops have performed on the same stage in a free outdoor public venue. Though the Boston Pops have performed at Franklin Park twice before-in 2000, under the direction of Keith Lockhart, and in 1968 with Arthur Fiedler-this will be the first performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Boston's largest park, and the first time Mr. Nelsons has led the orchestra in an outdoor venue in Boston.
