Attending a Landmarks Orchestra Concert
The Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s venue at the DCR’s Hatch Shell is known for its laid back, welcoming, non-traditional ambiance for an orchestral concert. People bring picnics, children, and even their dogs. A Landmarks concert at the Hatch Shell has a feeling of celebration about it. Added to that, Christopher Wilkins has set up what he calls the Maestro Zone, an area to the side of the stage where young people and the young at heart can follow the lead of the orchestra’s associate conductor in leading the orchestra. Participants are given a straw and can even look at the score which is placed in front of them. Long lines await their turn to see what it’s like to give a downbeat.
At all of our Hatch Shell concerts (including weeks when there is a guest orchestra), folding chairs are available to rent at our Information Tent for $5 each. If you are a member of the “Musical Chair” Club, check in at the Information Tent and we will give you a chair to set up on the lawn wherever you’d like.
