Presidents at Pops

May 10, 2018
The original Boston Pops corporate fundraising event, Presidents at Pops celebrates the extraordinary partnership between the corporate community and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Designed specifically for the Boston business community, Presidents at Pops offers leaders from every industry the opportunity to entertain their valued clients, employees, and friends in the company of Boston's top corporations, capped off with a gala performance with Keith Lockhart and the renowned Boston Pops Orchestra. 

This season, Presidents at Pops will feature a very special salute to longtime BSO Corporate Committee member and Greater Boston business leader, Tom May.  For more than 30 years, Tom has been a champion of the BSO and the Boston Pops as a loyal corporate event sponsor, committee member, and record-setting event chair.  A variety of lead sponsorships are available, including two levels in celebration of Tom.  Please inquire for more information.

Presidents at Pops also provides an opportunity to sponsor one or more students who attend Days in the Arts at Tanglewood (DARTS), the BSO's summer arts camp in the Berkshires. More than 400 middle school students from throughout Massachusetts attend this arts immersion program, regardless of their ability to pay.

Sponsorship packages include tickets to the Spring Pops concert, the cocktail reception, a gourmet boxed dinner, and a full sponsor page in the commemorative program book (prior to April 2) or sponsorship of students attending hte BSO's Days in the Arts at Tanglewood (DARTS) summer arts camp.
