Mary is honored to have been interviewed for the November 2021 issue of BBC Music Magazine, as part of journalist Brian Wise’s new article about classical music in cemeteries. Entitled “A grave concern”, the article includes a passage detailing Mary’s two-year composer residency at the historic Mount Auburn Cemetery of Cambridge, MA, USA; as well as a photo of her performing with the wonderful Planetary Quartet during a Mount Auburn pop-up concert in the summer of 2016.
“A grave concern” features interviews with several other musical artists as well as cemetery specialists, including Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Director of Education and Visitor Services, Jessica Bussmann.
BBC Music Magazine can be found in-store at retailers such as Barnes and Noble, as well as via digital magazine subscription services such as Readly and Kindle Unlimited.
Thank you so much to Mr. Wise and BBC Music for including Mary in this fantastic article and issue!
