Keith Lockhart Talks About CARMEN, Christmas And Downloads
by Joseph F. Panarello - Nov 27, 2009

Orchestra conductors develop distinctive styles as they shape and mold the sounds that their orchestras produce. Such is the case with Keith Lockhart. As the conductor of the famed Boston Pops orchestra, he has upheld what is affectionately known as 'The Pops Sound' and audiences expect it when they visit Symphony Hall. However, there was no doubt that Lockhart was in the orchestra pit wielding the baton during the Boston Lyric Opera's recent production of Georges Bizet's CARMEN at Beantown's theatre district.

Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra to Perform WINTER DREAMS Concert, Today
by BWW News Desk - Nov 22, 2013

The world of music is a vast place indeed, with room for what seems to be an endless mix of styles – everything from aboriginal drum melodies to esoteric computer scores. After about four decades of the musical avant-garde, in the late 1960s and early 1970s a style known as “minimalism” emerged in which the continuous repetition of simple musical elements (or one basic phrase) became the basis for a complete score. New names soon arrived on the scene, including Steve Reich, Philip Glass and John Adams, among others. Also, a single overriding idea managed to prevail, at least for a time: it seems they all sought to escape from the spectacular, ultra-modern din (some say “noise”), reaching for a kinder, gentler manner of serious music.

BWW Reviews: THERE IS HAPPINESS (and Absurdity) at Cleveland Public Theatre
by Roy Berko - May 13, 2013

If you went to college, and took a course in poetry, you'll find yourself morphing back and wishing that your professors had had a romp in the grass, and expressed themselves with such absurd hysterical language, as the duo in THERE IS A HAPPINESS THAT MORNING IS, which is getting a fine production at CPT.

BWW Reviews: NEW YORK CITY BALLET Offers a Music Lesson Along With Four Ballets Set to Scores by French Composers
by Sondra Forsyth - Mar 3, 2014

As a welcome surprise during the New York City Ballet matinee on Saturday, March 1st 2014 at the Koch Theater, the recently renovated orchestra pit rose so that Interim Music Director Andrews Sills could give us an interesting history lesson with the musicians in full view. Under the direction of Guest Conductor Henrik Vagn Christensen, they played passages from Debussy's "Prelude to an Afternoon of a Faun" and from works by Saint-Saens, Wagner, and Chopin while Sills explained that Debussy was "a bridge" between the legacy of The Romantic Age and the modern era.
