John Williams Film Night Tributes Concerts in Boston - May 29 - May 31, 2019

Recommended Posts

As usual, Boston Pops announced their Spring Pops Season in Group Section.

 

According to this material, there will be 3 John Williams Film Night Tributes Concerts on May 29-May 31 in Boston (Symphony Hall). All three concerts will be conducted by Keith Lockhart. Unfortunately there is no clear info on John’s presence during the concerts, no „special guest„ announcement neither.

 

My assumption is, that JW might not be there after all, but this is just a guess…

Yep.. I saw this just in time for the Tanglewood on sale date yesterday.

 

Got my ticket for Tanglewood on Parade, the only concert of 2019 where Maestro Williams is confirmed to conduct at least one or two pieces.

 

Wishing him all the best for his recovery, and Star Wars 9!

I thought about getting a ticket for that myself, but it's a rather meagre programme to justify a trip to America, especially with the level of Williams's involvement being (I believe) still unknown. And who knows what happens until then. Even if it's just a scheduling conflict with Ep9, I wouldn't be all too surprised if Williams ended up not conducting this at all.

The program is not complete yet. There are some Pops selections as well (one year KL conducted the JFK suite), and the concert ends with both the TMC (student) orchestra joining forces with the BSO for a supersized rendition of Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, with live canons on the lawn.
