Sleigh Ride 和 The Boston Pops Orchestra


Sleigh Ride雪車之旅

是美國作曲家Leroy Anderson在1948年七月,
一個非常熱的日子所作The Boston Pops Orchestra首演,
現在已成寫聖誕期間時常聽到的歌曲。


                                        



The Boston Pops Orchestra 說是
Boston Symphony Orchestra波士頓管絃樂團的 B 隊,
成立於1885年, 由管絃樂團中的二線樂手組成, 
以演奏一些普及化古典音樂及流行曲為主,
無分樂季, 全年演出, 也承担了向年青人推廣正統音樂的責任。






享受音樂不一定要坐在富麗堂皇的演奏廳內, 你或者笑我冇品味, 
不過我更享受街頭音樂, 表演者與觀眾近距離, 甚至有眼神接觸,
也不用奏些高深難明的樂章, 有共鳴才有知音!
Boston Pops走進群眾的平民樂隊,希望有機其中

The Boston Pops Orchestra is an American orchestra based in Boston, Massachusetts that specializes in playing light classical and popular music.

The Boston Pops was founded in 1885 as a second, popular identity of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), founded four years earlier. Consisting primarily of musicians from the BSO, although generally not the first-chair players,[1] the orchestra performs a Spring season of popular music and a holiday program in December, the BSO schedule on break at those times. For the Pops, the seating on the floor of Symphony Hall is reconfigured from auditorium seating to banquet/cafe seating. In addition the Pops also plays an annual concert at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade every Fourth of July. Identified with its long-time director Arthur Fiedler, in the past the orchestra has recorded extensively, made frequent tours, and appeared regularly on television. The Pops Spring and Holiday seasons allowed the BSO to become one of the first American orchestras to provide year-round employment for its musicians.[citation needed]

The current Music Director of the Boston Pops Orchestra is Keith Lockhart. wiki
