    Boston Pops Gears Up for 2019 Spring Season

    The Boston Pops are gearing up for a new season, and it's a musical grab bag with something for everyone.

    Bernadette Peters opens the 2019 spring season on May 8, and conductor Keith Lockhart will lead four performances of a special film presentation of the original "Star Wars: A New Hope" with John Williams' Academy Award-winning score on May 10, 11 and 14.

    Arlo Guthrie stars in a "Summer of '69" program commemorating the 50th anniversary of Woodstock on May 15-16. And "Hamilton" star Leslie Odom Jr. returns June 5-6 for a centenary tribute to Nat King Cole.

    Travel guru Rick Steves will appear in a special program called "Rick Steves' Europe: A Symphonic Journey," on June 13 and 14.

    Lockhart calls the eclectic lineup a crowd pleaser and "a compelling spectrum of choices."
