Celebrity Series of Boston believes in the power of excellence and innovation in the performing arts to enrich life experiences, transform lives, and build better communities. Celebrity Series seeks to build a community of Greater Boston where the performing arts are a valued, lifelong, shared experience — on stages, on streets, in neighborhoods — everywhere. Celebrity Series now presents over 70 mainstage performances in eight to ten different venues, and over 150 community engagement activities annually. In a region rich with cultural offerings, Celebrity Series is a critical part of the cultural fabric of Boston and New England, not only bringing great artists to Boston who audiences might not otherwise experience, but also introducing audiences to new artists, new art forms, and new artistic experiences. Today, Celebrity Series’ audiences experience the world’s great orchestras, chamber ensembles and soloists, and leading artists in contemporary dance, jazz, world and folk music, and spoken word. Alongside mainstage performances, Celebrity Series’ Arts for All! community engagement programs connect it with a dynamic network of hundreds of community collaborators, reaching thousands of individuals annually, through 150+ activities. Arts for All! programs include Neighborhood Arts (hands-on, interactive workshops for youth, and free community concerts for audiences of all ages at neighborhood venues, both led by a core group of Boston area artists); Artist Connections (master classes with mainstage artists in public schools and conservatories); Take Your Seat (free and discounted tickets to mainstage performances); and large-scale, participatory Public Performance Projects, such as Street Pianos, Let’s Dance Boston and its 2019 commissioned project, Concert For One.
