Under the swinging baton of conductor Keith Lockhart, the Boston Pops will play the songs of a more sophisticated time in Music from the Mad Men Era. Come to Symphony Hall dressed in the fashion of the early '60s for a concert inspired by Mad Men, AMC's hit period drama. Singer Steve Lippia, whom Lockhart has called "the absolute vocal reincarnation of the Sinatra sound," will channel the Chairman of the Board as the Boston Pops plays lush orchestrations of your favorite standards. Lockhart, Lippia and the Pops will perform everything from lounge Latin to the tunes of the British invasion, as well as such classic songs as "Fly Me to the Moon," "Mack the Knife" and "The Best is Yet to Come." In addition to the music, special lighting and period cocktails available for purchase will help recreate that period of fiery optimism and maximum cool. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Boston Symphony Orchestra
Now in its 126th season, the Boston Symphony Orchestra gave its inaugural concert on October 22, 1881, and has continued to uphold the vision of its founder, the businessman, philanthropist, Civil War veteran, and amateur musician Henry Lee Higginson, for well over a century. The Boston Symphony Orchestra has performed throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, South America, and China; in addition, it reaches audiences numbering in the millions through its performances on radio, television, and recordings. It plays an active role in commissioning new works from today's most important composers; its summer season at Tanglewood is regarded as one of the world's most important music festivals; it helps develop the audience of the future through BSO Youth Concerts and through a variety of outreach programs involving the entire Boston community; and, during the Tanglewood season, it sponsors the Tanglewood Music Center, one of the world's most important training grounds for young composers, conductors, instrumentalists, and vocalists. The orchestra's virtuosity is reflected in the concert and recording activities of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players, one of the world's most distinguished chamber ensembles made up of a major symphony orchestra's principal players, and the activities of the Boston Pops Orchestra have established an international standard for the performance of lighter kinds of music. Overall, the mission of the Boston Symphony Orchestra is to foster and maintain an organization dedicated to the making of music consonant with the highest aspirations of musical art, creating performances and providing educational and training programs at the highest level of excellence. This is accomplished with the continued support of its audiences, governmental assistance on both the federal and local levels, and through the generosity of many foundations, businesses, and individuals.
