Boston Pop’s spring season returns

BOSTON – The music is back.

For the first time since the pandemic began, the Boston Pops are hosting a spring season of live performances, the orchestra said Thursday.

“The musicians of the Boston Pops Orchestra join me in expressing our sheer excitement to present the upcoming Spring Pops season and once again welcome a live audience to Symphony Hall in 2022,” conductor Keith Lockhart said in a statement .

The revival of in-person concerts will “return the power and meaning of the live concert experience,” he said.

It’s the Pops’ first spring season since 2019 and revives a tradition that dates back to 1885.

The line-up of this spring will be the pops-conductant John Williams Tribut Zasen, the last month was 90 years old, including performances by Williams’ title song for the classic of 1980, “Star Wars: The Empire beats back”.


It opens on May 19 with works by composer Alan Menken, best known for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. In June, concerts will highlight the music of jazz legend Duke Ellington, and the season will end with a night dedicated to gospel.

Live performances have been canceled for 2020 and most of 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic, although the pops briefly ventured back to Symphony Hall in December for a holiday concert series.
