Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Boston Pops Orchestra is an American orchestra based in Boston, Massachusetts, that specializes in playing light classical and popular music. The Boston Pops was founded in 1885 as a second, popular identity of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), founded four years earlier. Consisting of most of the musicians of the BSO, although generally not the first-chair players, the orchestra performs a summer season of popular music in a casual setting at Symphony Hall, and outdoors at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, both in Boston. Closely identified with its long time director Arthur Fiedler, the orchestra has recorded extensively, made frequent tours and appeared regularly on television. The summer pops season allowed the BSO to become one of the first American orchestras to provide year-round employment for its musicians.show more
