"Two of Boston's iconic cultural institutions – the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and the Boston Pops – will come together at Symphony Hall to honor President Kennedy and the 1960's era of American culture. The evening will evoke the 1960s 'Mad Men' era, with a special musical performance featuring excerpts of President Kennedy's most memorable speeches narrated by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick.
Song stylist Steve Lippia, whom Keith Lockhart has called, 'the absolute vocal reincarnation of the Sinatra sound,' will step into the limelight, to perform the smoky standards that define the chic sounds of the '60's. Lockhart, Lippia, and the Boston Pops will perform everything ranging from this era's lounge Latin to the tunes of the British Invasion, as well as such classic songs as 'Fly Me to the Moon,' 'Mack the Knife,' and 'The Best is Yet to Come'.
Now celebrating 40 years as Boston's longest-running outdoor concert series, these performances at City Hall Plaza feature exciting, non-stop entertainment for music lovers of all ages.
Concerts include Motown Night, Disco Night featuring Stardust, and United States Air Force Band of Liberty. They have free, live music at both City Hall's- Cambridge and Boston.
So grab the kids, your significant other, or a stranger (not really) and throw your dance dance revolution game away. This Wednesday - and almost every Wednesday for that matter- is your free chance to get your boogie on. Not in the boogie mood? Well then you are just a boring person. :) Okay not really, you can chill with me and just simply enjoy the music. These free Wednesday night events start at 7:00PM so don't be late!
The Esplanade never fails to have some of the best, free events in Boston. Bring your listening ears, people, and join the Boston Landmarks Orchestra for a night of Latin beats, including mambo and merengue on July 18.
The Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s 2012 Landmarks Festival at the Hatch Shell will feature Latin music for its “Fiesta Sinfónica.” This special performance, which will showcase a salsa band, will take place on July 18 at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Esplanade. And I'm sure it'll still end on time whether there is a fat lady or not, so don't be late! AND I will be doing the salsa so you don't want to miss my special performance either :)
