Keith Lockhart leads the Boston Pops Orchestra in holiday classics old and new to both inspire you with hope and create holiday cheer this year. From the Pops’ classic "Sleigh Ride" and brilliant "Twelve Days of Christmas" to jazzy arrangements of traditional favorites, you’ll also hear "O Holy Night," "Home for the Holidays," a virtual performance with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and a special new reading of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" ("‘Twas the Night Before Christmas").
Special highlights for young audiences include "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" accompanied by an imaginative musical film in collaboration with FableVision Studios, a virtual performance of "Christmas Time is Here" by the Boston Symphony Children's Choir, and the Pops tradition of a singalong of your favorites to make the season bright. Sensory supports will be available for families with children or adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or sensory sensitivities.
Portions of this Holiday Pops program were filmed at Fenway Park, where team mascot Wally participated in the recording festivities.
Available to stream online starting December 10 at 12PM through January 9.
