Saturday, December 9 at 8 p.m.
This holiday special showcases the best of the New England holiday season with the Boston Pops and Tanglewood Festival Chorus, under the direction of Keith Lockhart, performing beloved classics, including "Christmas Canticles"and "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel’s Messiah. Filmed at historic Symphony Hall in Boston, the show features several special segments, including a performance by bass-baritone Justin Hopkins. Country superstar Sara Evans sings songs from her 2014 holiday album “At Christmas,” and Mad Men and Broadway star Robert Morse reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas” with musical accompaniment. Of course, no Holiday Pops concert would be complete without the orchestra’s signature rendition of Leroy Anderson’s "Sleigh Ride,"a piece written expressly for the Boston Pops, and a visit from the one and only Santa Claus.
