Keith Lockhart is Grateful for BIDMC

If theres one mantra in Keith Lockharts life, its never to underestimate the power of music. As the 20th conductor of the world-renowned Boston Pops, Lockhart has seen it transform lives, break down barriers, and soothe souls. And he is grateful for the opportunity to play a role in bringing this power to the masses. The reason that the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops have maintained their position at the top of the arts institution world, he says, is because, almost from their inception, they were founded very strongly in the principles that these institutions, at some level, existed for everybody in the community.”
