The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and conductor Keith Lockhart will perform a special limited engagement holiday concert at Old Dominion University's Ted Constant Convocation Center at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 25.

Lockhart began his musical studies with piano lessons at the age of seven. The 20th Conductor of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, he has recently entered his 10th season as the Pops Conductor. Lockhart has conducted more than 750 performances and 60 television shows.

The Boston Pops was founded in 1885 to offer "light music of the best class." The holiday concert is best known for its rousing sing-alongs and touching renditions of great Christmas classics. The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra's holiday concerts traditionally involve local celebrities' narration of familiar holiday stories.

The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, consistently selling out holiday performances, is comprised of the members from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, minus twelve of the principals who tour as the Boston Symphony Chamber Players.

Tickets are on sale now at the Constant Center Box Office, Virginia Arts Festival Box Office, on-line at constantcenter.com, or by calling (888) 411-4TED. Tickets can also be purchased at USA Discounters, Tidewater Sports & Collectibles, and Relative Theory Records.
