A and I had a rare "date" last night, and free tickets to the opening night of the Boston Pops. Our seats were on the floor, quite close to the stage. The music was lively and interesting, and there were special effects, video, a balloon drop, as well as fantastic music. I really enjoyed it!
Highlights were a performance by a 19-year-old cellist named Anthony Rymer, and the musical stylings of Barbara Cook, who is 80+ years old and fantastic!
P.S. Couldn't resist this video I just found about the Pops rehearsal for last night's performance!
