Get Ready for Boston Pops Pop-Up Concerts
To promote the live stream of their Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular show, the Boston Pops will perform five pop-up concerts around the Northeast.
For the first time ever, this year the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will be live-streamed, and to help spread the word, Keith Lockhart and a 10-member ensemble will “pop up” at a few different locations in the Northeast¬†to let people know.
Here’s where the¬†Boston Pops pop-up concerts will take place. Performances will last about an hour.
Sunday, June 29, 12 p.m.: Six Flags New England, Agawam, Mass.
Sunday, June 29, 5 p.m.: Titus Sparrow Park in the South End, Boston
Monday, June 30, 7:30 a.m.: Logan Airport, Terminal B, Boston
Monday, June 30, 2 p.m.: Father Duffy Square, Times Square, New York City
Monday, June 30, 5:45 p.m.: Bedford Street, Downtown Stamford,¬†Conn.
In addition to the pop-up shows, fans are encouraged to tweet¬†about the Fourth of July show live stream for a chance to win a prize: a trip to Boston for two, including round-trip airfare and a three-night stay at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, plus¬†the opportunity¬†to conduct the Boston Pops during their 2015 season at Symphony Hall.
