Celebrity Series at Home

Stay connected with the Celebrity Series!

Dear Friends,

In this week’s Celebrity Series at Home newsletter, we are thrilled to announce that Celebrity Series is a recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support our community-based Boston artists and programming through our Arts For All! Neighborhood Arts program.

Gary Dunning, Executive Director of the Celebrity Series, says, “We believe it is more important than ever to honor our commitments to artists, and in so doing support not only their livelihoods but also their need to create. Even if we cannot gather in person, we still want to invite people of all ages and walks of life to come together in shared, interactive live performing arts experiences that celebrate creativity, expand our horizons, and broaden our understanding of ourselves as individuals and as a society.”

As the summer progresses, we have three more free online performances scheduled for the public. Also, we are presenting a series of private concerts for The Boston Home in Dorchester, and are planning additional public virtual concerts into the late summer and fall.

Thank you for supporting our efforts as we delve into this new world of virtual concert production! We have truly enjoyed working with all of our Neighborhood Arts artists in bringing their performances to you online.

Friends, thank you for opening our Celebrity Series at Home emails on a regular basis and engaging with our online content. We are grateful to have an opportunity to stay connected with you and when the time is right, we will see you again at live performances.
