Quote from Keith Lockhart, Julian and Eunice Cohen Boston Pops Conductor

“The musicians of the Boston Pops Orchestra join me in expressing our sheer joy in presenting the upcoming Spring Pops season and welcoming back a live audience at Symphony Hall in 2022! While re-opening Symphony Hall last fall and with Holiday Pops, so many of us have felt the power and meaning of the live concert experience more than ever before. We bring the music of this spring season to our audiences, but it’s our audiences — by their participation, enthusiasm, and expressions of gratitude — who bring all of us a sense of purpose and inspire a deep appreciation of community that enriches all our lives."
