Legacy: Edward MacDowell

Edward MacDowell is oftentimes referred to as the “first Classical American Composer.” We invite you to listen to his beautiful and lauded “Woodland Sketches,” inspired by the very place that we hope soon will reopen as a home to 300 artists – across seven disciplines – every year, all year long.
