Pops goes the senator

Sunday night, I was sent to one of my favorite places in Boston, Symphony Hall. I hadn’t been there since I was a kid — I loved listening to the Boston Pops — but, man, it seemed a lot smaller than I remembered.

This time around, I was sent to photograph Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren as she read the classic poem, “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” more commonly known as “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” It was a pretty good show, with art from a children’s book version projected as the Boston Pops provided musical accompaniment.
