Although Boston's Symphony Hall is far from sub-Saharan Africa, the famed auditorium will pulse to East African rhythms as MITCAN, MIT's East African performance ensemble, makes its Boston Pops debut on Thursday, June 1 at 8pm.
Boston Pops laureate conductor John Williams will conduct the program for the 103rd annual Tech Night at Pops, which also features works by Mr. Williams, Aaron Copland, the overture to Frank Loesser's Guys and Dolls, a Hoagy Carmichael Suite and a tribute to Frank Sinatra, concluding with MIT's alma mater, In Praise of MIT (Arise, All Ye of MIT). A post-Pops reception will be held at Symphony Hall.
Any tickets still available for Tech Night at the Pops will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis on Thursday, June 1 at La Sala de Puerto Rico from noon-6pm (limit 10 tickets per person). Contact Amy Seybold-Burke at x3-8216.
