Exciting, eclectic non-traditional string quartet from the Bay Area will take Boston by storm in their debut concert in newly renovated Gilman Chapel in Cedar Grove Cemetery in Dorchester. The Grammy nominee's performance will be the second in a new concert series, taking advantage of the peaceful and beautiful surroundings of the area, yet within walking distance of restaurants and shops of Historic Lower Mills and Adams Street.
Accessible from the Cedar Grove T-station via the Mattapan-Ashmont Trolley from the last Red Line station at Ashmont, it is famous for being the only cemetery in the United States with a trolley running through it.
The notable people buried here include Congressional Medal of Honor recipient James W. Verney and Wilmon Blackmar; Former Mayor of Boston George Hibbard; last surviving pall bearer of Abraham Lincoln Senator John Conness; Samuel German, who invented German Chocolate at the Walter Baker Company; and Sarah Smith, mother of Rev. Samuel Francis Smith, the author of “America.”
