Boston Pops on Nantucket

A annual benefit for Nantucket Cottage Hospital, the Boston Pops on Nantucket is a tradition - this is their 13th year.

The host was Chris Matthews from 'Hardball with Chris Matthews'.

Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops' annual Pops on Nantucket concert featured Broadway sensation Michael Cavanaugh, hand-picked by Billy Joel to star in his smash hit Movin’ Out. Cavanaugh brought a fun night of the Piano Man’s music to Jetties Beach, including such show-stoppers as “River of Dreams,” “You May Be Right,” “Uptown Girl,” and “Piano Man.”

Keith Lockhart also lead the orchestra with music from the Boston Pops' latest release The Red Sox Album, including Fenway’s favorite “Sweet Caroline,” and other baseball classics such as “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” with soprano Kristen Watson and tenor Matthew Anderson, and “Casey at the Bat” with narrator Jeremiah Kissel.

The concert culminated with the 1812 Overture and fireworks.

As thousands of people left the beach and headed for town, we managed to run right into an empty cab that held 10 easily - so we were whisked back to our units in no time.
