The program, led by guest conductor Sarah Hicks – in her Boston Pops spring season debut – features music inspired by outer space, with onstage commentary from the celebrated actor.
Highlights include Holst’s The Planets (performed alongside a NASA film), the theme from "Star Trek," the Also Sprach Zarathustra theme popularized in the film "2001: A Space Odyssey," and Boston Pops Laureate Conductor John Williams’s intergalactic music from "Star Wars," "E.T." and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
In recent years, the 82-year-old Nimoy has become well known for his photography. His work has been exhibited at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams. His exhibit and book "Secret Selves" used Western Massachusetts residents, who depicted their hidden sides.
