Hooray for Hollywood

boston-pops.jpgSome of my happiest high school memories are musical in nature -- I made wonderful friends and played in fantastic venues such as Symphony Hall as a violinist on the competitive circuit. Not surprisingly, I'm a fan of the BSO and the Pops, the latter of which opened its season last week. And if you and your kids would like to enjoy the musical brilliance that frames many memorable movies, the Pops will present three performances of Hooray for Hollywood next week, during which esteemed composer and conductor John Williams (yes, the John Williams of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Harry Potter fame, among many other films) will lead the Pops in shining a light on famous cinematic villains and heroes. And how cool is this? The kind folks at the Boston Pops are offering one of you awesome readers a 4-pack of tickets to Hooray for Hollywood*! It'll make for a bit of a late school night but will be well worth it! Here's how to enter to win:
