The Landmarks Orchestra believes that Boston—like every great city—deserves a summer series of free orchestral performances. Though the concerts are free to the public, they are not free to produce. Your gift will help support free concerts at the Hatch Shell and throughout Boston this summer, and every summer!


The Boston Landmarks Orchestra is proud to present music education programs and family concerts to engage the hearts and minds of young people and adults throughout Boston’s diverse neighborhoods.
