Seth MacFarlane and the Boston Pops pair up for an unlikely, unforgettable performance.
Voicing a raunchy, precocious toddler on Family Guy and a foul-mouthed teddy bear in Ted: These are the things we expect from Seth MacFarlane. But legit singing? Now we can expect that too after MacFarlane showcases his crooning talents with the Boston Pops this summer. It turns out that when he isn’t producing, writing, and developing hit shows and movies, MacFarlane somehow finds time to release albums. MacFarlane has lent his singing talents to his TV shows and Oscars hosting duties, but his three studio albums, inspired by Sinatra classics, show fans a whole new side to the 42-year-old comedian—and have garnered him two Grammy nominations to boot. His award-worthy voice will join the Boston Pops on July 10 at Tanglewood. Each summer, this music venue nestled near the Berkshires hosts the Boston Pops and a lineup of fan-favorite acts, including, this year, Dolly Parton and James Taylor. Led by distinguished conductor Keith Lockhart, the Pops and MacFarlane program includes classics from the ’40s and ’50s. Forget about comedy for the night—we’re ready to see MacFarlane serenade.
