Concert in the Park 2023


Post Office Square Boston, MA

Thanks to our generous sponsors, Concert in the Park has raised nearly $3 million for the arts since 2014!

Concert in the Park is the debut spring concert event featuring the best youth performing groups of New England’s Inspire Arts & Music. The evening concert is headlined by IAM’s premier performing group, the Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps as they prepare for their summer tour across the country. The evening is capped off with a cocktail reception for sponsors.

Inspire Arts & Music impacted more than 20,000 young people in 2019 – diverse in age, experience and demography – by providing performing arts opportunities. Our City of Boston programs experienced growth, adding free music programming at the Salesian East Boston Boys & Girls Club, and the Boston YMCA. These programs are free of charge as Inspire provides the expert instruction and musical instruments while partnering with long standing city youth resource hubs like the Hyde Park Community Center,  and the Walter F. Denney Center (Dorchester Boys and Girls Club). We were also able to award twenty-two performing arts scholarships to exceptional young performers in the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps, and four scholastic scholarships to Great East Music Festival participants heading off to college – over $47,000 in scholarships! We are also investing in our building’s critical infrastructure needs to ensure long term sustainability of our programming.
