Keith Lockhart has been the conductor of Boston Pops for more than 25 years. He has led 2,000 concerts with the orchestra in many venues and events, such as the Super Bowl. It is also notable that many of their performances are of Sondheim's works. In the maestro's tribute letter to the musical genius in 2021, he wrote about his most memorable performances, which are Sondheim's musical A Little Night Music and the musical revue Sondheim on Sondheim. "I learned so much from his work…starting in 1985, when I conducted a forty-performance run of Sweeney Todd as a young musician in Pittsburgh and extending to 2017 when the Pops premiered an orchestral version of the autobiographical Sondheim on Sondheim, which Stephen honored with his presence when we performed it in Tanglewood that August," he adds. Apart from Sondheim, Lockhart has led tribute concerts for many composers and musicians.
This year, Lockhart and the Boston Pops is returning to Tanglewood in Koussevitzky Music Shed, Lenox, Massachusetts, on Friday, August 19, for a sentimental performance of Sondheim's music. Broadway stars Nikki Renée Daniels (Company), Conrad Ricamora (The King and I), Emily Skinner ( Once Upon a One More Time), and Alton Fitzgerald White (The Lion King) will join them.
