Concert in the Park 2024

Thursday, June 13th at 5 pm

Norman B. Leventhal Park in Post Office Square Boston, MA

Performances by: Boston Crusaders, HYPE, Blessed Sacrament Colorguard, Riverside Theatre Works, and more!


Thanks to our generous sponsors, Concert in the Park has raised nearly $4.5 million for the arts in the last 11 years!

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 at Sip Cafe in the heart of Post Office Square.

In 2024, Inspire Arts & Music will celebrate the 11th anniversary of Concert in the Park. What was just an idea to showcase great kids performing in the arts, has become a marquee event and has raised over $4,500,000 in support.  In turn, Inspire Arts & Music has turned that support into sustainability in our work to provide transformational life experiences. Our programs continue to grow in size and diversity – and we are engaging our communities with even more presence and purpose! Over ten years, the philanthropy of our sponsors and donors has directly impacted over 1 million kids, creating over 5,000 performance opportunities, and hundreds of thousands of hours of music and arts education, leadership and teamwork!

The arts are thriving on Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park. Our building on Fairmount Avenue is the home of Inspire operations, and the home of Riverside Theatre Works organization. Programming is bustling and the building is critical to the fabric of the Hyde Park community.  We have made critical improvements to the building in Hyde Park. These projects have helped local kids and will have a longstanding impact on the greater community. We are now planning needed accessibility improvements and upgrades. Concert in the Park contributions have been invested into building a sustainable organization. Our mission is now part of the legacy of our many sponsors and donors!
