John Williams is one of the greatest and most beloved living composers. His film scores, from Star Wars to Schindler’s List are forever woven into the fabric of American culture. The Boston Pops led by Keith Lockhart will celebrate Williams’ formidable legacy, heard in scores from Born on the Fourth of July and Saving Private Ryan to E.T. and Harry Potter.
As its longtime principal conductor and its current conductor laureate, John Williams has a special rapport with the famed Boston Pops, affectionately known as “America’s Orchestra.” Lockhart, who succeeded Williams’ as conductor of the Pops in 1993, continues to make Williams’ music central to the orchestra’s repertoire.
