The Autumn Connection

  

It’s a season of opposites….

On the one hand, the possibilities of summer are gone, the chill of winter is on the horizon, and many people turn inward — both physically and mentally.

On the other hand, there may be a blaze of color as trees turn gold and red
— and harvest festivals offer one last celebration before cold weather sets in.

In this hour, the many faces of autumn, as portrayed in music by Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, MacDowell, Debussy and more.
