Into the Forest: Live from Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts

Radio 3 goes Into the Forest and Sean Rafferty presents a special edition live from Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts, in the heart of the forests of New England.

As BBC Radio 3 goes Into the Forest, Sean Rafferty presents a special edition live from Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts, in the heart of the forests of New England.

As part of Radio 3’s Into the Forest, In Tune broadcasts a special 150 minute concert live from a traditional American barn in the stunning Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in western Massachusetts, USA, a short distance away from the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Tanglewood. Set in the heart of the Berkshire Hills as the leaves of the New England forests turn golden, the programme is broadcast as a co-production with the Boston radio station WGBH, Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Massachusetts nature conservation organisation, the Mass Audubon Society. We'll have top-class live music from Boston Camerata, violinist Yevgeny Kutik, folk fiddler Bruce Molsky, The Borromeo String Quartet and a piano trio from the Alumni of Tanglewood Music Center.

This concert is the finale of a week-long residency for In Tune, celebrating great American musicians amongst the Autumn Forests of New England, alongside BBC2’s Autumnwatch.

Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.

Producer: Marie-Claire Doris
