Neighborhood Concert Series

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.

This series is supported in part by East Boston Savings Bank and grants from the Cambridge Arts Council and the Waltham Cultural Council, local agencies supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
