Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart: Exhibition & Reception

March 21st, 2013 in Arts, Galleries & Exhibits, Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center 0 comments

Keith Lockhart Flyer JPGPerhaps 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.

For more information, contact the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at 617-353-3696 or at archives@bu.edu.

Side Streets: Mass Ave

“Side Streets” is a partnership between BU Now and The Quad, in which Quad writers will profile things to see and do along different streets that intersect Commonwealth Avenue. This week’s street of choice, Massachusetts Avenue, is otherwise affectionately referred to as “Mass Ave” by Bostonians. Mass Ave is 16 miles of history and culture. The street runs from Dorchester to Lunenberg. On a journey down Mass Ave, you’ll encounter bars, restaurants, historic landmarks, shops, and even colleges.

Should you find yourself in far eastern BU territory, make moves to Mass Ave and stop in any of the following highlights of the legendary street.
