About the Faculty Concert Series
Our talented faculty members tour audiences at local venues through their world of music. Concerts take place at community organizations in neighboring towns, such as senior centers and libraries, to bring high-quality music to those who might otherwise not have access to it.
Thank you to the East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation for their support of this year's series!
