Concert Details

Join us for our 5th annual celebration of arts and music!​

Thursday, June 14, 2018 – 5:00PM
Norman B. Leventhal Park – 130 Congress Street

Thanks to our generous sponsors, Concert in the Park raised over $505,000 in 2017!

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 in the Langham Hotel.

Inspire Arts & Music impacted more than 20,000 young people in 2017 – diverse in age, experience and demography – by providing performing arts opportunities. Our City of Boston programs experienced growth, adding three more music programs and a new location in Dorchester. 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 twelve 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 $45,000 in scholarships! 2018 will bring more music programs to other areas of Boston and we are introducing three new art programs in South Boston at the Condon Community Center!
