Boston Pops — 2013/05/25 & 06/01

I'll be away next weekend, so here's the story for this time and next. Unless something goes terribly wrong, I'll be back by June 8.

June 25 (repeat June 2) — Gospel Night  Here's how the performance detail page describes it.
Revel in the rousing sounds of Gospel music. The passion, the delight, the celebration that is at the heart of all Gospel music will entertain and enlighten you throughout the concert. Featured is the Boston Pops Gospel Choir, whose exuberant sound will leave you walking on air as you leave Symphony Hall after one of the Boston Pops most popular nights. Charles Floyd, conductor. Gospel Night 2013 is Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 8PM

June 1 (repeat June 9) — Music from the Mad Men Era  Performance detail tells us:
The Boston Pops and Keith Lockhart will invoke the sophistication and style of the 1960s in concerts throughout May and June inspired by AMC's period drama Mad Men. Song stylist Steve Lippia, whom Keith Lockhart has called, "the absolute vocal reincarnation of the Sinatra sound," will step into the limelight, to perform the smoky standards that define the chic sounds of the '60's. Lockhart, Lippia, and the Boston Pops will perform everything ranging from this era's lounge Latin to the tunes of the British Invasion, as well as such classic songs as "Fly Me to the Moon," "Mack the Knife," and "The Best is Yet to Come". Performances on May 21-22, 31 and June 1, 2013.

The times for the live and repeat broadcasts and webstreams over Classical New England are as usual. See previous posts. Also see their page for their info about it.

June 26  The afternoon retransmission is last Saturday's Tribute to Marvin Hammlisch.
