    Audra McDonald joins the Boston Pops, led by conductor and composer John Williams, for “John Williams’ Film Night” at Tanglewood’s Koussevitzky Music Shed in Lenox, Massachusetts, on Saturday. McDonald and the Pops perform selections from a number of films, including music by Williams, Gershwin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and others. Composer/conductor David Newman also leads the orchestra in medleys of works by his father, Alfred Newman, and Henry Mancini. (David Newman is the brother of Thomas Newman and a cousin of Randy Newman.)

    Coincidentally, McDonald performs next on another program featuring music by John Williams, at the Southern Vermont Arts Center's Arkell Pavilion in Manchester, Vermont, on Sunday, as part of the Manchester Music Festival. Directly following a performance by the MMF Pops Orchestra of film music including Williams’ Star Wars score, she takes to the stage with music director Andy Einhorn for the second half of the benefit concert, closing out the festival’s summer season. She performs songs from throughout her career, including selections from her latest album, Go Back Home.

    Audra McDonald continues to perform in North America through the fall, including the San Francisco Symphony’s Opening Night Gala and a free show at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, spotlighting the riches of the Library’s musical theater collections.

    Adams heads next to Melbourne to conduct the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in the Australian premiere of his 2009 piece City Noir at Hamer Hall next week.

His Australian tour continues with a performance at Wollongong’s Town Hall on Saturday, and rounds out with a performance at Melbourne’s Recital Centre on Monday.

The group offers selections from Redman’s latest Nonesuch release, Walking Shadows, and more.

    In the latest issue of Harvard magazine, contributor Craig Lambert muses about Redman’s college years at his alma mater—among other things, performing with the Harvard Jazz Band “while finding time to graduate summa cum laude”—as well as his first performance with his father, Dewey Redman, and moving to Brooklyn after college.
