  The Wizard of Oz was a technical marvel for the MGM studio in the late 1930s. MGM has stunningly re-mastered this timeless classic, and in a version, produced by John Goberman, the brilliantly restored images are accompanied by a the Boston Pops playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen's brilliant lost scores.

The Boston Pops' conductor, Keith Lockhart, joins us to talk about the challenges and wonders of this special presentation which will be in The Shed at Tanglewood on 8/22.

    This Sunday, country star, Vince Gill, will perform with The Boston Pops in the Koussevitzky Music Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox, MA.

The country singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and member of the Grand Ole Opry has been honored by the Country Music Association with 18 CMA Awards, including two Entertainer of the Year awards and five Male Vocalist Awards. Gill has also earned 20 Grammy Awards, more than any other male Country music artist. In 2007, Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
