Boston Pops To Perform Williams? Music This Spring
Posted 05 March 2005 - 02:57 AM
This is from today?s new Press Release:
HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD
Bruce Hangen and the Boston Pops celebrate the music of John Williams, the most widely recognized film composer of all time, with a "Hooray for Hollywood" program on May 25, 26, 27, and 28. These concerts honor Williams' enduring legacy with music from throughout his unprecedented career, including selections from Star Wars, E.T., Jaws, Superman, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Harry Potter series, and many more.
I?m sure those living in the Boston area will welcome this change.
Interesting year. First, the London Symphony does a concert of JW?s music without him, and now the Boston Pops will do the same.
Tickets go on sale this coming Monday.

If not, I think I'll save my money and get a good seat at Tanglewood.

Can't Williams squeeze in time for ONE concert in Boston???
Foxfan, you already know the answer to that question. But since there was a recent article in the Boston Globe regarding the Boston Pops 2005 season, I'll give you a reinforcement.
According to Mark Volpe, Managing Director-Boston Symphony, they were lucky as it is to get him to conduct the one concert at Tanglewood. Mr. Volpe says that Williams has overextended himself with film-scoring assignments.
And let us not forget that Williams lives/works in California.
