Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart (a Poughkeepsie native and Roy C. Ketcham High School grad) is taking over the World Wide Web!
The Boston Pops announced today that they are the first orchestra to launch an Internet television broadcast: "Oscar and Tony". It will feature award-winning music of Hollywood and Broadway. That means tunes from Chicago, Titanic, The Phantom of the Opera, 42nd Street, The Sound of Music, Lawrence of Arabia, and Out of Africa! This Boston Pops Internet broadcast will be offered for free at www.bostonpops.tv
The broadcast will also have behind-the-scenes footage of a recording session, interviews with musicians, a conducting lesson with Lockhart, who also serves as the program host, and more. Local guy makes good -- again!
