Boise Philharmonic Picnic at the Pops

Editors' Picks

Classical music can be intimidating. Say the word "symphony" and some people's faces fill with a brief flash of fear. But add a little food and a little more wine and put the whole thing under the summer sky, and suddenly it's all good. Boise Philharmonic's new series of summer outdoor concerts shook the stuffiness out of classical music and programs that featured tunes from the Harry Potter films proved the perfect bridge to get young music lovers interested in the genre. Add to that the Phil's new young-patron ticket program and you have an excellent way to rejuvenate the classical scene in Boise. Bravo, we say, bravo.
