BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) -- As the country returns to a level of normalcy, large special events are being planned for the Fourth of July.
The Boston Pops announced their July 4th Spectacular Concert will take place at Tanglewood’s Koussevitzky Music Shed.
It is a tradition for the Boston Symphony Orchestra group to perform at the Esplanade, but it was canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Their performance at Tanglewood will take place on Sunday, July 4, from 8 pm-11 pm.
The Boston Pops are partnering with the City of Boston on a live fireworks display from the Boston Common, "bringing the closing portion of the July 4 event back across the state to the city that has proudly presented this iconic, large-scale event since 1974."
"All of us at the Boston Pops are putting our hearts and souls into planning our Fourth-of-July live concert stream for the many wonderful fans of the Boston Pops and the July 4 holiday. We are thrilled that this special event will launch Tanglewood’s reopening and that we will have a chance to show Boston Pops fans across the country the great beauty and appeal of one of America’s most beloved summer music festivals," Keith Lockhart, Julian and Eunice Cohen Boston Pops Conductor said in a statement.
The Pops have not performed in front of live audiences at Symphony Hall since March 2020, however, have been doing several pop-up concerts across the city.
