Hal Leonard & The Boston Pops Announce Collaboration

The New "Boston Pops Concert Library" Features Famed Orchestra's Arrangements Available for Purchase

MILWAUKEE 8/15/17 -- Two of the music world's biggest icons, The Boston Pops Orchestra and Hal Leonard, have created a publishing partnership to produce a new series of beloved Boston Pops arrangements. Never before available, selected Pops titles will be released in retail editions, purchasable by orchestras around the world for their own music libraries.

The Boston Pops Concert Library will feature arrangements by revered orchestral arrangers of holiday, patriotic and entertainment classics, heard in Boston Pops concerts and recordings. Each edition will be professionally produced with engraved scores and parts and will also include program notes by Pops conductor, Keith Lockhart.

Paul Lavender, Hal Leonard Vice President of Instrumental Publications, said, "The Boston Pops library is arguably America's richest treasure trove of popular symphonic music, brilliantly created and nurtured over many decades by Arthur Fielder, John Williams, and Keith Lockhart. Hal Leonard is delighted to make this music available for other orchestras, conductors, and their audiences, throughout the world."

Keith Lockhart, Boston Pops conductor, said, "Since our founding in 1885, the Boston Pops essentially established the Pops genre and has cultivated an impressive library of music reflecting over a century of America's wide-ranging musical tastes. We are thrilled to share this extraordinary collection of great music with ensembles throughout the country and around the globe, and bring the Boston Pops signature library to Pops fans far and wide."

The first Boston Pops releases will be available in summer 2017 and further information can be found at
