Bank of New Hampshire’s Prestige Plus Members Enjoy a Historic Trip to Boston

New Hampshire – June 7, 2018 – Fifty Bank of New Hampshire Prestige Plus members and their guests enjoyed a recent trip to Boston to see one of New England’s most beloved traditions, the Boston Pops spring concert at Symphony Hall.

The trip began with a delicious meal at the famous Chart House restaurant which is housed in the four-story Gardiner building. It served as an office to Thomas Hancock and, subsequently, his nephew John Hancock. Often referred to as “Hancock’s Counting House,” it is the oldest building on Long Wharf. The Boston Chart House, which opened in July 1973, continues to be a Bostonian favorite. Prestige Plus members noticed many original fixtures such as Hancock’s safe, broad wooden beams, floors, red brick walls and the staircase. After dinner the group traveled to Symphony Hall for The Best of the Boston Pops! Joining the Pops was guest conductor Thomas Wilkins who led the orchestra in a tribute to Arthur Fiedler. A wonderful rendition of Rhapsody in Blue by Gershwin brought a standing ovation from the audience! A highlight of the spring concert was a sing-along including old favorites, As Time Goes By, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, Moon River, The Way we Were, and Over the Rainbow. It was a wonderful evening at “The Pops!”
