One of the festival's most beloved traditions, the ever-popular Tanglewood on Parade takes place this year on Tuesday, August 1, offering audiences a full day of musical activities for the entire family, culminating in an 8 p.m. concert in the Shed featuring all of the festival's orchestras performing in a single concert. Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart and Pops Laureate John Williams, along with conductors Charles Dutoit, Bramwell Tovey, and BSO Assistant Conductor Moritz Gnann lead the BSO, Boston Pops, and Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra in a program of works including Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man; Copland's Piano Concerto, featuring 2017 Koussevitzky Artist Garrick Ohlsson; the suite from Kodály's Háry János; the Mendelssohn's Hebrides Oveture; and music from John Williams' scores to Jurassic ParkMinority Report, and Jaws. The traditional Tanglewood on Parade finale, Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, closes the concert, followed by fireworks over the Stockbridge bowl.
