CCM Associate Professor of Piano and Keyboard Studies Division Head Michael Chertock will perform as a soloist with the Boston Pops during the beloved orchestra’s tour of Florida next month.

Affectionately known as “America’s Orchestra,” the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will be performing a “best of” program throughout Florida from Feb. 3 – 9. Conductor Keith Lockhart promises, “a broad spectrum of styles, from jazz to pop, indie rock to big band, film music to the great American songbook, and Broadway to classical.” Learn more about the tour here.

Chertock will also conduct and perform as soloist with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra on March 6 in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
