Michael Leidig, a classical pianist and Emerald Necklace Conservancy Docent, discusses the life and major professional accomplishments of the “Father of Landscape Architecture” with a particular focus on his prized Boston gem: The Emerald Necklace. In addition, Michael will perform classical music that Olmsted would likely have heard during his time in Boston in the late 1800’s including 3 rarely known and performed Boston-based composers G.D. Wilson, Edward MacDowell, and Amy Beach.
This discussion is offered as part of the Conservancy’s Summer on the Emerald Necklace event series.
