Oct. 14: A New England Kind of Day

By Laura Carlo

Friends from California are coming out this way in the coming weeks to visit with my family and to “experience a real New England autumn.” They know that Boston is a major metropolitan area (they’ll be flying into Logan) and they’ll likely scout out a college or two for their daughter while they’re here...but what I really think they’re hoping for is to see the “Currier and Ives” New England ---you know---covered bridges, maple sugaring, sleigh rides in the countryside.  I think with all the hub bub of our wack-a-doodle lives these days many of us New Englanders would wish a return to that, too, even if for just a little while. I thought today we just might go back to that with some New England-centric pieces from William Grant Still and Aaron Copland.  And while you're enjoying some apple-cranberry pie with warm cider, let me know what makes a great New England autumn for you by posting a comment below!
