Posted on: May 27, 2021

“Forget tickets, fans of the Boston Pops only have to be in the right place at the right time to see the orchestra perform,” writes Michael Bonner in Wednesday’s (5/26) Mass Live. “The Boston Symphony Orchestra is reviving its ‘Rolling Recitals’ across Boston on Wednesday and Thursday by teaming up with Old Town Trolley Tour and Boston Duck Tours [tours of the historic city and on amphibious vehicles]. The pop-up performances begin Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at Symphony Hall and will continue through Thursday. In total, the Boston Pops plans to host eight performances over the next two days. Following the performance at Symphony Hall, the orchestra will play at Jamaica Pond Bandstand … [then] at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University [and] Franklin Park Zoo. Thursday’s performances begin at Symphony Hall … followed by a pair of shows at the Rose Kennedy Greenway…. The orchestra will perform at Auntie Kay and Uncle Frank Chin Park [and] Dewey Square. The final show of the pop-up tour will be at the New England Aquarium.”
