Keith Lockhart & the Boston Pops Welcome Several Boston-area Young Musicians to Perform Saturday, May 14
The Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart present a highly anticipated Family Concert Saturday, May 14, at 3 p.m. featuring the multi-talented Byron Stripling on trumpet and vocals, as well as performances by several local youth musicians. Certain to encourage aspiring young musicians in the audience, the Varsity Girls, a Boston-based teenage vocal quartet, lend their pop harmonies to the orchestra; Jackson Mann, a Boston Arts Academy senior, receives the distinct honor of leading the orchestra in its signature work, The Stars and Stripes Forever, and Gergana Haralampieva, winner of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Concerto Competition performs a piece with the Pops.
Appropriate for children of all ages, the Family Concert will include youth-friendly selections from Harry Potter, Star Wars, and E.T. Families and children will also be introduced to the music of Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway, and Mahalia Jackson, when the charismatic Byron Stripling takes to the stage to pay tribute to these three great icons of American music.
