Singer and actress Maureen McGovern joins the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall tonight at 8 p.m. The singer of Oscar-winning hits “The Morning After” and “We May Never Love Like This Again” will perform songs from her latest album, A Long and Winding Road.

A Night with Maureen McGovern will be conducted by Keith Lockhart, the 20th conductor of the Boston Pops. Lockhart, who joined the Pops in 1995, performed with McGovern when she was a Pops guest during the June 2007 corporate fundraiser “Presidents at Pops.”

Grammy-winner McGovern, who has been a concert performer for nearly 40 years, will sing selections inspired by her ’60s folk singing roots, including James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain” and the Beatles’ “Let It Be.”

A Night with Maureen McGovern runs through Thursday, which is sold out. Onstage in the last few years as Marmee in the musical Little Women, McGovern has starred on Broadway in The Pirates of Penzance, Nine, and Threepenny Opera.

More information about Maureen McGovern and her newest album is available here.

A limited number of rush tickets can be purchased today, starting at 5 p.m., for $9, at the Symphony Hall box office, 301 Massachusetts Ave., Boston.
