With a soft bit of warm up, and a flare to attention. The Orchestra sprang to life and, with it like a starters pistol, took off into what has become the official start of Christmas for me.

The Boston Pops Orchestra is simply magnificent, to just sit back and close your eyes and listen to this groups wonderful talent spill out over the packed hall.. to imagine the increase of energy created by their gifts and lifted out of the audience... It is simply awe inspiring.

I am so very very glad that we were able to go and enjoy this. It really does feel like the holidays now.
