  Tony and Emmy Award winning star Kristin Chenoweth will perform with The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra in The Koussevitzky Music Shed at Tanglewood.

Chenoweth most recently wowed audiences in Roundabout Theatre Company's production of On the Twentieth Century. During that run she co-hosted the Tony Awards. Other Broadway credits include You're A Good Man Charlie Brown and Wicked. On television she's popped up often, notably on Glee, The Good Wife, and Pushing Daisies.

  Dennis Alves has been the Director of Artistic Planning for The Boston Pops for 25 years. Prior to that he played trumpet in the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. He was twice a Tanglewood Music Center Fellow and before that studied in Lenox as part of the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.

Needless to say, he knows the lay of the land and can tell us a lot about Tanglewood on Parade.
