Head Back to the Future with the Boston Pops on New Year’s Eve
Great Scott! Back to the Future is taking over Symphony Hall just in time for New Year’s Eve.
The Boston Pops has a special treat in store for fans who can’t get enough of Marty McFly and Doc Brown, as the orchestra will be performing the full score to the 1985 hit film during three post-Christmas concerts. The performances, which include screenings of Michael J. Fox’s classic movie, are scheduled to take place on December 30 and December 31.
Conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos has been tapped to lead the upcoming shows, which will also feature 20 minutes of new music written by Alan Silvestri, the composer who crafted the original score for Back to the Future.
In addition to the music-filled festivities, the Pops are bringing a refurbished DeLorean to town that will be on display in a tent located outside of Symphony Hall during the weekend of the performances. Fans can win a ride in the time-traveling automobile by taking an online quiz on the Pops’ Facebook page. The contest will remain open to the public until noon on December 30.
$46-$130, Friday and Saturday, December 30-31, Symphony Hall, 301 Massachusetts Ave., Boston, bso.org.
