Synopsis: The son of Russian immigrants, Harry Ellis Dickson was violinist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra for fifty years and Assistant Conductor for Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops. With humor and warmth, he shares reminiscences and anecdotes about family and friends, colleagues, travels, and the Boston Symphony, including reflections on the presidential campaign of his son-in-law Michael Dukakis and his daughter Kitty's struggles with alcoholism.
