With amazing performances and stories no one else could present, Buddy's son, Sandy Hackett, recreates the legendary Rat Pack. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop return to life for a unique performance in Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show. These performers will wow audiences once again as they step onto the stage, just as they did back in the ring-a-ding-ding days at the Sands Casino in Las Vegas. In addition, audiences will hear original, never-before-heard songs written by the late songwriter Ron Miller ("For Once In My Life"), and recorded voiceovers made exclusively for this show by Sandy Hackett's father, the late comedian, Buddy Hackett.

The young orchestra - Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra - was wonderful. The great conductor was able to get a fine performance out of them. Gil Shaham was absolutely fantastic. His joy of music shone through in this fantastic performance. He was obviously having fun playing which is such a breath of fresh air - so many soloists are way too serious and look as though it is a chore to be playing.

About the Ticket Supplier: Boston Symphony Orchestra
Now in its 133rd 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.
