Here's another great Christmas album for you Christmas music lovers: "A Boston Pops Christmas - Live From Symphony Hall"!
This is the orchestra's first Holiday offering since 2004, and is designed to capture the unique charm and magic of a live Holiday Pops concert.
"A Boston Pops Christmas - Live From Symphony Hall," is led by Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart and features the world renowned musicians in the Boston Pops, the celebrated Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and vocal powerhouse Melinda Doolittle, a former American Idol contestant. The tracks were recorded live at Boston's Symphony Hall, widely considered one of the top concert venues in the world.
The album showcases the orchestra's signature Holiday Pops tune, "Sleigh Ride," in its original arrangement composed especially for the Boston Pops by Leroy Anderson in 1948. The album is sure to appeal to all ages, featuring some of the most popular tunes of the Holiday season such as "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!," and "Jingle Bells" as part of A Merry Little Sing-Along which leaves listeners filled with the holiday spirit.
Other highlights include 'Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas,' a recent Boston Pops arrangement of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," and a Boston Pops rendition of "Zat You, Santa Claus?"-the orchestra's tribute to the world's greatest celebrity, Santa Claus.
