About the concert
Since 1998, Boston Symphony Orchestra musicians have presented free Community Chamber Concerts, offering high-quality, engaging chamber music to Greater Boston communities facing barriers to accessing the BSo whether it be due to distance or economics. These concerts aim to forge personal connections to the BSO, fostering increased engagement with orchestral music over time. The events are free with reservations, featuring approximately one-hour programs. The 2023-24 series features 16 free chamber music concerts, with 13 held in various locations across greater Boston and three at Tanglewood. These concerts showcase the unique intimacy of chamber music, performed by BSO musicians and special guests.
For this special evening, EHCC is proud to host BSO musicians Glen Cherry and Sophie Wang on violins, Mary Ferrillo on viola, and Will Chow on cello. The repertoire will include Sofia Gubaidulina’s String Quartet No. 2, Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 1 in C, Op. 49, and Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 44, No. This extraordinary concert is free and open to the public, emphasizing EHCC’s commitment to making classical music accessible to the community. Following the performance, the EHCC invites attendees to join a reception featuring delightful food and refreshments.
Our Promise to the Arts
Since 2017, EHCC has been a proud partner of the BSO through the EHCC Emerging Bright Stars Academy (EBSA), and this collaboration continues to flourish by bringing the beauty of classical music to the heart of Everett. Together, EHCC and the BSO have worked to break down barriers in access to classical music in the Everett community, notably with the youth of Everett. EHCC’s EBSA organizes yearly outings during the holiday season to the BSO for the children of its program to enjoy the enchanting music of the BSO. EBSA provides youth aged 5-17 with enrichment programs across disciplines such as French language arts, music, visual arts, and dance. EBSA provides yearly summer programs, weekend online programs, and after school programs during the school year in partnership with the Everett Public Schools in addition to various community events for youth.
EHCC’s commitment to shaping a brighter future extends beyond its immediate community, echoing its dedication to excellence and holistic community betterment.
