Boston Pops/Classical New England — 2014/06/21

WCRB will be broadcasting and streaming the "Film Night at the Pops" program which John Williams led on four evenings earlier this month. The station's BSO page has a brief description and links to other things having to do with the Boston Symphony, including the concerts available on demand. The orchestra's performance detail page offers the following description:
June 6-11 at Symphony Hall in Boston, Boston Pops Laureate Conductor John Williams returns for this signature event of the season. Hear cherished and familiar themes from such favorite movie scores as Star Wars,Jaws, and Harry Potter. Mr. Williams will salute some of his illustrious predecessors, whose work influenced him, and in turn he will also lead selections by some of today's notable film composers, many of whom have undoubtedly been influenced by him. With the incomparable Boston Pops Orchestra led by the maestro of movie music, this is a concert not to be missed!
There will be a repeat broadcast/webstream on Monday, June 30 at 8:00 p.m., and it will then be made available on demand. John Williams will also conduct the Pops in a Film Night program at Tanglewood on August 2. It may be slightly different from the one he did in Symphony Hall.
