 They'll be at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, performing a program titled "The Very Best of the Boston Pops."  It includes symphonic selections by Dvorak and Copland, 20th-century works by Ellington and Gershwin, rock by Queen and film music by former Boston Pops conductor John Williams. Pianist Michael Chertock joins the orchestra for a performance of George Gershwin’s "I Got Rhythm Variations."
