Berklee College of Music, Boston Harbor Island Alliance, and the Boston Harbor National Park join forces to bring up-and-coming Berklee students and alumni to Fort Warren on Georges Island for free live performances of pop, R&B, bluegrass, roots, folk, Latin, and more. All that's needed to enjoy an afternoon of music is a ferry ticket. The concerts are part of Berklee Summer in the City presented by Natixis Global Asset Management.
