From Courtney Malcuit:
“Last May, I had the pleasure of working the evening Leonard Nimoy was present at Boston Symphony Hall. The Boston Pops Orchestra held a performance of outer space-themed selections ranging from classical to popular film tunes. Mr. Nimoy was the host of the show that evening, his recognizable baritone reverberating through the hall. I was fortunate enough to listen in on the show when things had slowed down, and I heard Nimoy offer tidbits about the songs before they were played by the orchestra.
Honestly, as clichéd as it sounds, it felt like only yesterday I had witnessed that event. He seemed so comfortable, so healthy, and perhaps being back in his hometown of Boston had something to do with it, but he was a natural-born performer. We’ve lost one of the great, multifaceted artists of our time.”
