Due to the weather forecast this program has been cancelled.  We hope to reschedule for the summer.

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