Boston Pops"Two of Boston's iconic cultural institutions – the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and the Boston Pops – will come together at Symphony Hall to honor President Kennedy and the 1960's era of American culture. The evening will evoke the 1960s 'Mad Men' era, with a special musical performance featuring excerpts of President Kennedy's most memorable speeches narrated by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. 


Song stylist Steve Lippia, whom Keith Lockhart has called, 'the absolute vocal reincarnation of the Sinatra sound,' will step into the limelight, to perform the smoky standards that define the chic sounds of the '60's. Lockhart, Lippia, and the Boston Pops will perform everything ranging from this era's lounge Latin to the tunes of the British Invasion, as well as such classic songs as 'Fly Me to the Moon,' 'Mack the Knife,' and 'The Best is Yet to Come'.
