Perhaps no Boston Pops orchestra conductor has brought as varied an array of compositions as Keith Lockhart. From Broadway’s Carousel to the self-produced Red Sox Album, Lockhart’s style, effervescence and ability to connect with audiences have kept him at the conductor’s stand for 17 years. Now, the friends of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center present an exploration of his archive and a discussion with the local legend.
On Wednesday, April 3 at 6:00 PM in the Metcalf Ballroom, Lockhart will discuss his life and career and his work with artists such as John Mayer, Steven Tyler and Sting. A reception will follow and guests will be treated to an exhibition of the Lockhart archive.
This event is free to students with a BU ID.
The Metcalf Ballroom is located on the second floor of the George Sherman Union at 775 Commonwealth Avenue.
Tonight, the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center hosts “Espionage, Secrets and Spies,” offering a close-up look at World War II and Cold War-era documents and artifacts. The collection will include items from the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg case; documents on the first US orbital spy satellite, Corona; and objects from the precursor to the CIA, the Office of Strategic Services.
“Espionage, Secrets and Spies” will be hosted tonight at 6:00 in the Gotlieb Reading Room on the fifth floor of Mugar Memorial Library. The event is part of Gotlieb’s Student Discovery Seminars (pdf) and is open to students with a BU ID. For more information, visit the related BU Today article and the Gotlieb website.
