Memory eternal. Lenny will always be remembered standing in front of us directing the Octet. In Louisville the priest's pronunciation was cracking us up and Lenny could not look at anyone (neither could the rest of us). So he directed with head down, waving his hands above his head and we watched his hands. We never missed a beat.
