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 program is supported by East Boston Savings Bank Charitable Foundation, and by grants from the Peabody, Somerville, and Waltham Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
