Music & Festivals

There’s more to music in Boston than Boston. While More Than A Feeling is still our song of choice to sing while no one else is listening, music in Boston is about more than love ballads and big-hair bands. Prefer composers to songwriters? We hear the world-famous Boston Symphony Orchestra covers Mozart like no other. Take to Tanglewood to see them outdoors in concert and have all your senses engaged simultaneously. The Boston Calling Music Festival is a three-day extravaganza of music featuring renowned artists from all over the world. And the Somerville PorchFest is, well, just that, intimate neighborhood performances from the front of somebody’s house. So sing, hum, tap and sway and you’ll have #NOSUMMERREGRETS.
