“An Orchestral Film Night with John Williams”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

My 3rd consecutive trip to see world renown film score composer John Williams. What's there not to like? I absolutely love it every year! BSO is a historical theatre, John Williams is a historical music figure, and of course Boston is history at its finest!

“Boston Pops Rock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We caught the Out of this World concert narrated by Leonard Nimoy and it was even better than we expected. Great selection with music from Star Wars, ET, Star Trek and 2001 Space Odyssey. An "cute" encore was a nice surprise. We even hung out by the back entrance and got some photos of Leonard to boot. No autographs though! The BSO is the most world renown orchestra for a good reason. Don't come to Boston without catching a show.

“Classic Classical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Great building which has history even without the great musicians that play every night. Music selections range from pure classical to doing soundtracks while they show movies and Bugs Bunny.

“Wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This was on my bucket list and it did not disappoint. We had a lovely evening even tho we didn't sit on the floor and have table service. We sat in the balcony and still throughly enjoyed the concert.
