Seth MacFarlane set to sing with orchestra


Seth MacFarlane will be showing off his pipes when he helps the Boston Pops orchestra kick off its spring concert series.

The 42-year-old actor and filmmaker will be the opening night guest on Friday.

The Family Guy creator will be singing a selection of popular songs from the 1940s and 1950s, according to the ensemble.

Seth is no stranger to the orchestra, having appeared with them over the summer.

Founded in 1885, the Boston Pops consists of musicians from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and generally plays popular music.

The following week, film composer John Williams is set to lead the orchestra in selections from Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones and other movies he's scored.
