Fenway Chamber Concerts at NEU

BSO Community Chamber Music Series at Northeastern University
The BSO's Community Chamber Music Series at Northeastern University invites Boston-based audiences to attend community concerts just down the street from Symphony Hall, taking advantage of the Fenway Center's outstanding acoustics and location.

Students and faculty in the Music Department at Northeastern's College of Arts, Media and Design take an active role in the concert series by leading pre-concert talks, providing program notes, and handling the behind-the-scenes work such as recording the performance for archival purposes. The series is part of ongoing BSO efforts to involve both students and members of the local community.
