Massachusetts features music for all tastes: classical, jazz, early music, even a rich history of rock and roll.

The cornerstone is one of the world’s greatest orchestras, the Boston Symphony Orchestra. It performs in Symphony Hall, celebrated worldwide for its magnificent acoustics and historic location, conveniently just steps from the T.

For opera buffs, the Boston Lyric Opera features lavish productions. Of course, no Fourth of July would be complete without the Boston Pops concert at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade. Two popular venues for contemporary music: the dramatic Bank of America Pavilion on Boston Harbor and the Comcast Center, a 19,000-seat amphitheater in Mansfield.

Be sure to check out the MassJazz website for jazz venues and upcoming concerts.
