The core of our business since 1938: we present renowned artists at venues across Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville. We are one of the nation’s most highly regarded independent presenting organizations, partnering with established, internationally-acclaimed artists and emerging talent to curate a diverse lineup of performances.
Top local artists perform free and low-cost concerts in Neighborhood Arts, often brought to life through deep collaboration and co-creation with youth arts groups, at community venues in six Boston neighborhoods. Our Take Your Seat ticketing program makes mainstage performances accessible for community organizations and school groups, and Artist Connections brings masterclasses and workshops to students of all ability levels.
Now an annual tradition, we present free outdoor projects across the city and in some of Boston’s most iconic public spaces: Street Pianos Boston, Jazz Along the Charles along the Esplanade, Let’s Dance Boston on the Rose Kennedy Greenway, and more.
We acknowledge that Celebrity Series presents performances in multiple venues around Boston which reside on traditional ancestral and unceded lands of the Massachusett tribe. We honor their people, past, present and emerging, and their connection to the land on which we gather.
