Boston Pops on Nantucket

The 13th Annual Pops on Nantucket with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops on Saturday, August 8 at Jetties Beach will feature Broadway sensation Michael Cavanaugh, hand-picked by Billy Joel to star in his smash hit Movin’ Out.

MSNBC anchor and summer resident Chris Matthews will host the evening. Matthew hosts “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” on MSNBC and is also the host of the syndicated weekly news program “The Chris Matthews Show”.

Cavanaugh, a Tony and Grammy Award nominee, will perform Billy Joel’s “River of Dreams,” “You May Be Right,” “Uptown Girl,” and “Piano Man.”

Keith Lockhart will lead the orchestra with music from the Boston Pops’ latest release “The Red Sox Album”, including Fenway’s favorite “Sweet Caroline,” and other baseball classics such as “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” with soprano Kristen Watson and tenor Matthew Anderson, and “Casey at the Bat” with narrator Jeremiah Kissel.
