Holiday music filled the halls at Children’s Hospital Boston prior to Christmas as Keith Lockhart and members of the Boston Pops were joined by Joey McIntyre, the youngest member of New Kids On The Block, to perform an exclusive holiday concert for Children’s Hospital patients.
The stars spread holiday cheer among patients and their families with Yuletide tunes such as Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, The Twelve Days of Christmas, and Sleigh Ride, as well as a seasonal sing-along. McIntyre also followed the Pops back to Symphony Hall to appear as a guest narrator on A Visit from St. Nicholas (“’Twas the Night Before Christmas”), and a vocalist on Winter Wonderland and O Holy Night during the matinee Boston Pops performance.
The concert was aired throughout the hospital on closed-circuit television. Following the performance, several Boston Pops musicians made individual in-room patient visits.
