Boston Symphony Hall will host a special charity concert on November 27 in support of United Sound. Dave Matthews Band saxophonist Jeff Coffin, Chicago Cubs executive/guitarist Theo Epstein and other music and baseball icons will join members of the Boston Pops Orchestra as part of the Double Header: Baseball Legends And Jazz Icons benefit.
In addition to Coffin and Epstein, additional participants include former Major League Baseball pitcher/current guitarist Bronson Arroyo, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, drummer Billy Kilson, bassist Ben Williams and Blessed Union Of Souls keyboardist Eliot Sloan. Additional performers and other surprise guests are also expected. “Game 1” of the double header will feature Coffin and Gordon leading a special ensemble. “Game 2” will see members of the Boston Pops with Arroyo, Epstein, Sloan and others playing, “alt-rock favorites by Pearl Jam, Goo Goo Dolls” and more.
