Heavenly Intonations: Laurel Hill’s Musical LegacyWhether we can hear it or not, music hangs in the air at Laurel Hill Cemetery—heavenly intonations of the singers, musicians, lyricists, and composers buried within. Visit the gravesites of those who contributed in some way to the musical legacy of America. In some cases, we’ll even hear their work. This includes the composer who created the first serious American symphonic work and was also the first music critic in the United States; the woman who wrote the first words that Thomas Edison uttered into his recently invented phonograph; and the “Bruce Springsteen of Early 20th Century American Opera,” who riled up audiences everywhere from Philadelphia’s Academy of Music to Teddy Roosevelt’s White House to the opera houses of Australia circa 1913.

The walking tour will take place on Sunday, November 14, 2021, at 1:00 pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
