First Church in Boston Thursday Mid-Day Recitals
September 15, 2011 - May 24, 2012
For the second consecutive year, First Church in Boston is presenting a mid-day recital series on Thursdays from 12:15-12:45pm. All concerts are open to the public; donations are accepted to support the programming. The series is divided into four areas, one for each Thursday of the month. Two of the areas are co-sponsored by local performing arts organizations: American Century Music and Boston Opera Collaborative. For an up-to-date listing of performers, visit www.firstchurchbostonmusic.org.
First Thursdays: Harpsichord Recital Series. Boston has long been known for its important role in the modern harpsichord revival. We continue this revival with a series of Thursday harpsichord recitals.
Second Thursdays: American Century Music Series. Under the direction of Scott Parkman, American Century Music is dedicated to performing the works of 20th-century American composers.
Third Thursdays: Boston Opera Collaborative Series. Boston Opera Collaborative is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to providing opportunities for emerging artists — including singers, directors, conductors, and theater technicians — to bridge the gap between higher education and a career in the arts.
Fourth and Fifth Thursdays: Works in Progress Series. This series features a diversity of up-and-coming performers from Boston and beyond.
