Boston Landmarks Orchestra

Boston Landmarks Orchestra celebrates its 20th season with a return to live music at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell on the Esplanade.

For the first live and free professional symphony concerts in Boston since the pandemic began, programming this summer celebrates the musical and community partnerships Landmarks Orchestra has built over its 20-year history. Hear uniquely American music side-by-side with music from Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela, as well as pieces by orchestral favorites like Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, and Bach.
