Description: Back by popular demand, Musicians of the Old Post Roads Delving Deeper online series provides comprehensive explorations of select historical and musical topics. With Episode 4, Sites and Sounds of Early Sudbury, MOPR continues its long-standing commitment to uniting historical performance with historic architectural sites along the Old Post Road. In this online presentation-performance, MOPRs musicians are joined by members of the Sudbury Historical Society to give an informative tour of some of Sudburys fascinating sites of historical significance. Locations include the Loring Parsonage (now home to the Sudbury History Center and Museum), Revolutionary War Cemetery, Hearse House, Town Pound, Hosmer House, First Parish, Rice Tavern site, and Wayside Inn. Viewers will meet a handful of little-known Massachusetts composers/arrangers like Samuel Holyoke, Oliver Shaw, and Isaac Lane along the way, as flutists Suzanne Stumpf and Vincent Canciello, violinists Sarah Darling and Jesse Irons, and cellist Daniel Ryan bring these 18th and early 19th century spaces to life with modern-day premieres of fascinating rediscovered works. All of the musical selections were composed or arranged by Massachusetts musicians at the time of each sites flourishing.
