I was thrilled to be invited to take part in Fenway Park’s 100th Anniversary celebration last Friday. It was a beautiful day to hold what is sure to be viewed as a historic event.
Members of the Boston Pops were on hand to perform 3 John Williams compositions. Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart kicked the festivities off with John Williams’ arrangement of the National Anthem. It was immediately followed by the playing of Maestro Williams’ “Hymn For New England.
As a special treat Maestro Williams conducted the world premier his new composition written for the occasion. Titled “Fanfare For Fenway”, the crowd reaction was closer to that of fans at a rock concert!
