Under the inimitable style of conductor Keith Lockhart, the world-renowned Boston Pops comes to the Valley Performing Arts Center and enthusiastically re-creates the sounds that dominated Broadway, concert halls, and the silver screen, from past to present. This evening's performance is guaranteed to raise nostalgic murmurs, cheers from the audience, and standing ovations when favorites such as the Overture to Candide, "Rhapsody in Blue," "42nd Street," "Hedwig's Theme" from Harry Potter, "Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy," "Dancing Queen," "Bohemian Rhapsody," and "Stars and Stripes Forever" resonate in the Great Hall. "...the best-known, most recorded and arguably most popular orchestra in the United States." --New York Times
