Normally the coming season would be filled with a diverse array of live performances by music, theater and dance artists. But these are not normal times.  We are adapting to the current circumstances and looking forward to the day when audiences and artists can return to our theaters and concert halls and once again engage in that singular co-creative experience that is live performance.

In the meantime, we are at work assembling a program of unique performances and dialogues to share with you over the coming months.  So, please join our email list to receive announcements of upcoming events.

Boston Brass in a Virtual Concert

Live Streaming Event

Sunday, 18 October, 8 p.m.

Join us for a free fully produced one-hour concert with the Boston Brass.  With over 35 years of international touring behind them, Boston Brass offers a terrific, artistically entertaining “something-for-everyone” program featuring familiar classical works to popular jazz standards, all delivered with the ensemble’s signature audience interaction and charming rapport. The ensemble's lively repartee, touched with humor and personality, bridges the ocean of classical formality to delight audiences in an evening of great music and boisterous fun. The philosophy of Boston Brass is to provide audiences with a wide selection of musical styles in unique arrangements, provided in a friendly and fun atmosphere.

In addition to the concert, Boston Brass has created a 30-minute educational video entitled “Rewired,” that explores the benefits of getting back to basics when rehearsing as an individual or ensemble.  The concert and educational video are part of the Boston Brass’s Arts Across America: Community, Together initiative.
