There are few conductors more American than Keith Lockhart. He's American-born, American-educated and the music director of what's often called "America's Orchestra," the Boston Pops.
So what's Lockhart doing conducting a quintessentially British program of Britten's Sea Interludes, Elgar's Cello Concerto (with Sophie Shao) and "Enigma" Variations and Butterworth's "The Banks of Green Willow" with the BBC Concert Orchestra, which the La Jolla Music Society brings to Copley Symphony Hall on Friday?
