About this Organization:

Boston Landmarks Orchestra produces free concerts and community events during the summer, with a growing focus on year-round programming. We foster a fun, accepting atmosphere not often seen at a classical music concert. Our concerts are a place where communities across Boston are brought together. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and demographics come together through the medium of music, barriers are broken down. We program works by composers of many different backgrounds and genres and collaborate frequently with an array of community partners. Our new year-round programming will have a particular focus on marginalized groups, including communities of color, low-income communities, and older adults.
