Boston Symphony Orchestra Kicks Off with a Pop!
The Spring 2014 season promises “The Very Best of Boston Pops,” with a series of concerts kicking off on May 7 at Symphony Hall. On Opening Night, “Seinfeld” star Jason Alexander hosts a night of singing, dancing and comedy with selections from Pippin, The Music Man and Merrily We Roll Along.
On May 8 and 9, conductor Keith Lockhart leads the orchestra in a showcase that highlights the genius of Arthur Fiedler with works by Leonard Bernstein (Candide Overture) and Duke Ellington (“It Don’t Mean a Thing”). There will also be familiar movie themes—such as E.T. and Harry Potter— from laureate conductor John Williams and contemporary hits including “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Dancing Queen.”
On May 10 and 11, the Pops will accompany a screening of the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. Learn more about the lineup at bso.org.
