Join Volunteer Docent Marilee O’Brien and musician David Gaylin for a walk through Mount Auburn to visit the gravesites of some of America’s most significant musicians. We will listen to their music as we learn about Grammy Award-winning artist E. Power Biggs, BSO founder Henry Lee Higginson, and composers Walter Piston, Randall Thompson, Leon Kirchner, and others. Mount Auburn is also home to the Chickering family who manufactured pianos and the Zildjian family, famous for their cymbals.
