The New England Connection

New England church with autumn color

 

It is the birthplace of Thanksgiving, the Boston Tea Party, and the Revolutionary War.

The home of maple syrup and blazing autumn color—and the cradle of American music.

In the next hour, New England . . . in vocal, instrumental and orchestral works from the 17th to 20th centuries.
