Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra Presents The Streisand Songbook

with Keith Lockhart and Ann Hampton Callaway
Wednesday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Platinum Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway joins Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to celebrate America's grande dame of entertainment, Barbra Streisand. This special evening features soaring symphonic spins on Streisand's classic and unforgettable songs from her Broadway debut through her Hollywood hits ("Funny Girl," "The Way We Were," "A Star Is Born"), and from her early pop recordings to her later concept albums (People, Higher Ground, What Matters Most). Sharing humorous and inspiring anecdotes of her collaborations with Streisand, Ann provides an insider's glimpse into the life of this legend.  Ann has recorded six of Barbra Streisand's songs on her recent albums, including "I've Dreamed of You," the song Streisand sang to her husband, James Brolin, on their wedding day.

To kick off the evening, Maestro Lockhart leads the orchestra in other music from Ms. Streisand's musical life (Julie Styne's "Overture to Gypsy," and Jerry Herman's "Hello, Dolly") as well as a special tribute to the music of the late Marvin Hamlisch.
