Boston, MA — To the Boston Symphony Orchestra and The Boston Pops, staff, and audiences:
Marvin Hamlisch had some of his most wonderful memorable musical moments with the Boston Pops. He was thrilled with your fine musicians, loved working with your staff, and adored the audiences.
Marvin was first and foremost a musician and he loved and appreciated his musicians. He was always aware of the fine glorious traditions he was grateful to be a part of that make up the fine history of your organization.
Whether it was performing for a group of dentists there, or to raise funds for a School or conducting the sweeping 1812 overture over the harbor to thunderous standing ovations by appreciative audiences.
When encouraging the audience he would say: “okay now everybody .. One, two ‚three, everybody say FLOSS !”
Marvin Hamlisch lived in his music. It was truly “WHAT HE DID FOR LOVE!”
Thank you Boston! Thank you Boston Symphony, staff, performers and crew. Thank you Maestro Lockhart for your kind acknowledgement of paying tribute to Marvin Hamlisch tonight !!!! Thank you for giving Marvin some of the most joyous moments in his life !
With Warm Appreciation, Mrs. Marvin Hamlisch (Terre)
