The Boston Pops and David Mugar, longtime Executive Producer of Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, announced that, starting in 2017, the Pops will produce the July 4th Esplanade events.

The Boston Pops is honored to take over the leadership and management of one of this city’s most treasured events-the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular-widely recognized as one of the country’s premier Independence Day celebrations,” said Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart. “Ever since David Mugar and Arthur Fiedler founded Boston’s modern-day July 4 celebration 43 years ago, the Boston Pops has played an intricate role in producing what has become one of the largest live concert events in the world. In addition to David, who will serve as an advisor, and the involvement of veteran July 4 Executive Producers Pam Picard and Rich MacDonald, all of us at the Boston Pops look forward to working closely with the Governor’s and Mayor’s offices to provide continuity to the event and make sure it moves forward in the style and scope to which our fellow Bostonians and visitors from around the country and across the globe have become accustomed.” “I am very pleased that the baton has been passed to the next generation,” said David Mugar. “The Pops will be outstanding stewards of a Boston tradition and I know for certain will lead the event into new chapters of success.”
