Concert Details

Join us our 10th annual celebration of arts and music!​

Concert in the Park 2024

Date TBA

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

Thanks to our generous sponsors, Concert in the Park has raised nearly $4 million for the arts in the last 10 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.

Inspire Arts & Music impacted more than 20,000 young people in 2022 – diverse in age, experience and demography – by providing performing arts opportunities. This year saw tremendous success for Inspire Arts & Music as we continued to invest in our community. In 2022, we introduced a new music program at Boston Prep in Hyde Park, now providing four music courses in three neighborhoods throughout Boston. 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 Thomas M. Menino YMCA and East Boston Salesian Boys and Girls Club of East Boston. While our music programs continued to grow, we continued renovations on our historic theatre building which included critical infrastructure needs and additional space for our programming. Our Great East Music Festivals also saw a huge return, as they provided performance opportunities and scholarships to thousands of students across New England. Plus, we capped off the summer with a record breaking second-place finish from the Boston Crusaders at the Drum Corps International World Championships!
