John Williams regretfully has had to cancel his upcoming appearances at Tanglewood in Lenox for Tanglewood on Parade on Tuesday (August 4) and Film Night on Saturday, August 22, due to a back ailment that requires him to rest and limit travel over the next few weeks. Williams is expected to recover soon and return to his conducting work in the coming weeks.

BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons will lead the Boston Pops in Williams’ “Throne Room and Finale” from “Star Wars” during Tanglewood on Parade on Tuesday (August 4). And Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart will join conductor David Newman to lead John Williams’ Film Night on August 22.
