The Boston Pops Orchestra is an American orchestra based out of Boston, Massachusetts which specializes in playing popular music in addition to small amounts of light classical music. The Boston Pops Orchestra was founded in 1885, and was comprised of members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. From 1885 to 1900, the group’s performances were a combination of light classical music, show tunes, and the odd-novelty song.
In 1930, the orchestra got its own official conductor, Arthur Fiedler. Under Fiedler’s fifty-year tenure, the orchestra’s popularity boomed. Fiedler was unhappy with how classical music was perceived and as a result of that, made a number of efforts to bring classical music to a broader audience. He brought the orchestra to the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, right next to the Charles River, for free. He also insisted that the orchestra perform popular music, as well as the most well-known classical music pieces. Fiedler’s tradition of concerts on the Esplanade continues to this day, with crowds of up to 500,000 watching the fourth of July festivities while listening to the Pops orchestra.
After Fiedler’s death in 1979, noted film composer John Williams took over and continued in the same fashion as Fiedler. Williams would work in a number of popular songs, as well as bringing in some of his own film scores into the orchestra’s repitoire. In 1995, the orchestra received its third conductor, Keith Lockhart.
Under Lockhart, the popularity of the orchestra has continued to grow as he too has taken a number of steps to increase its fandom. One touch Lockhart has added is bringing in popular musicians to come perform with the Pops orchestra. This has been met with high critical praise as artists such as Ben Folds, Guster, My Morning Jacket, and Elvis Costello have all performed with the orchestra.
The orchestra has also begun “POPSearch,” in which the orchestra sets out on a nationwide talent competition akin to American Idol in search of amateur singers, who are then given a chance to perform with the orchestra at their Fourth of July festivities. This idea was then spun off to the “Boston Pops High School Sing-Off A Best of Broadway Challenge.” In this, high school students from around the state submitted musical theater performances, and the winner was featured at their 2008 Fourth of July concert at the Esplanade.
