Summer Arts Weekend
Next weekend the 3rd annual Boston Summer Arts Weekend takes over Copley Square! This free outdoor event brings music to the square on Saturday and Sunday (July 26-27), including Grammy award winners Arturo Sandoval (pictured above), Los Lobos, and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. Other notable acts include New Orleans-based jazz-funk-hip hop group The Soul Rebels, Canadian guitarist Jesse Cook, The Boston Conservatory Dance Review, and our own Boston Landmarks Orchestra. (Check out the full schedule here!)
In the lead up to the Summer Arts Weekend, the sponsors have also organized an Arts Walk along Newbury Street on Wednesday, July 23. From 5-8pm, more than a dozen galleries will be offering refreshments, hors d’oeuvres, live music, and demonstrations. All week, they are also hosting a series of Arts Talks around town.
What a great week to be an arts-appreciator in Boston! :) I hope you get a chance to enjoy some of these amazing events!
