The courtyard of the Central Library in Copley Square, one of Boston’s most beautiful spaces, is filled with music during free, one-hour concerts throughout the summer. The courtyard hosts music that ranges from jazz to classical and from world to folk.
The concert for Friday, June 2 will feature Area 9 Quartet. Area 9 Quartet is a Boston-based ensemble dedicated to exploring the rich, diverse, and ever-growing chamber music repertoire for saxophone. Area 9 is proud to have commissioned and debuted new works by contemporary composers, including Jun Feng’s “Somehow, Tango,” performed at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 2015, and Michael Kosch’s “Castle in the Air,” which Area 9 premiered at New York City’s Metropolitan Playhouse in December 2016.
Concerts are moved to the newly renovated Rabb Hall in the event of inclement weather. For more information on the concert series, please click here.
