Program Description

Conductor John Williams and the Boston Pops Orchestra welcome John Raitt and his Grammy Award-winning daughter, Bonnie Raitt, for their first joint television appearance. In this "Evening at Pops" season-opener, John and Bonnie sing intergenerational duets on "Hey There" from Pajama Game and "I'm Blowing Away" and "They Say It's Wonderful" from Annie Get Your Gun. Father and daughter also go solo, with John performing "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" from Oklahoma and selections from Carousel; and Bonnie rocking Symphony Hall with her own band. Rounding out this program of great American music is Nashville superstar Mark O'Connor, fiddling his way through traditional, country and Broadway classics.
