Hello my dear friends!
I hope that you enjoy your time in America and that everyday you learn something new. Here on Nantucket is becoming more and more interesting. Tonight we have concert: Boston Pops on the beach. A lot of people came to the island just for the concert.
In 1997, one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most ardent supporters, Kathryn Clauss, had an idea. She wanted to bring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to Nantucket to host a benefit concert for the hospital. No one believed she could pull it off, but with a lot of hard work and help from friends, she did. Now it serves as the hospital’s biggest fundraiser.
The Boston Pops on Nantucket event directly benefits Nantucket Cottage Hospital, which in turn benefits Nantucket residents and visitors alike. The Boston Pops is the most recorded and arguably the most beloved orchestra in the country. Keith Lockhart said :
“The Boston Pops Orchestra performs the best music of the past and present, appealing to the widest possible audience with a broad spectrum of styles, from jazz to pop, indie rock to big band, film music to the great American songbook, and Broadway to classical, making it the perfect orchestra for people who don’t know they like orchestras!”
