As part of our public service mission, it might be important to address several queries put out on the Aimee Mann message board. These relate to her upcoming concerts with the Boston Pops.

huntre asks: "Lockhart or Levine? 5 bucks says it's Levine. I've never bet on a conductor before. This is almost exciting!"

Yes, huntre, James Levine does conduct inside Symphony Hall. But he is the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. And as such, he will be at Tanglewood, the BSO's summer home, preparing for the season. Keith Lockhart is the Boston Pops conductor.

rej727 posts the following: "I have it on good authority that the orchestral arrangements will be done by none other than film composer John Williams. They are going to perform the entire Lost In Space CD, but with alternate musical interludes mixed in. Imagine the title track, interspersed with the classis clip from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "Star Wars."

Interesting information, rej727, but again, we wonder about the source. John Williams did indeed compose the music for "Lost In Space" and the previously mentioned films. So we get it. You mean, Aimee's "Lost in Space". Very clever. One problem. Williams is no longer the chief conductor of the Boston Pops. That would be Keith Lockhart.

gtaro, after noting the crowd attire guidelines on the BSO website ("patrons generally wear semi-formal or business attire..." ), notes that "I guess that means I can't wear my Mickey Mouse t-shirt".

Actually, having witnessed the variety of clothing - from suits to ripped jeans - at the recent My Morning Jacket/Pops concert, we suggest you could, in fact, wear a Mickey Mouse t-shirt. But why? Take a lead from Jim James and Co. This is a night at Symphony Hall. Why not honor Aimee with your sartorial splendor.
