May's Best Bets In Entertainment
BY Paul Adler
Get ready for an evening with what is arguably America’s most admired orchestra, The Boston Pops. Led by conductor Keith Lockhart, the Pops are the most recorded orchestra in the country and have been a legendary force in classical music for more than a hundred years. In this rare Westchester performance at The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College, the Pops will present a program featuring audience favorites from the Broadway and American songbooks, as well as a range of 20th-century classical works. Turns out you don’t have to drive all the way up to Beantown to experience that city’s most majestic classical orchestra in the flesh.
