Drawing from the many talented artists and scholars from Boston and abroad since 2008, the Boston Arts Consort presents programs that combine the aesthetic, cultural, and literary aspects of its themes for a multifaceted and enjoyable audience experience.
The Boston Arts Consort developed naturally out of director Linda Papatopoli's lifelong interest in the arts and world culture, and her career as a classical pianist.
At the heart of its programming is the music and culture of Spain. Varied and colorful, events throughout the year highlight classical music, Zarzuela, poetry and cuisine, and are often accompanied by lecture presentations by cultural historian Margarita Campos, Communications Lecturer at Barcelona University. Boston's popular Spanish cuisine expert and teacher, Chef Luis De Haro, provides delicious food for our events.
Whether presenting Scenes of Spain in Music, Food and Dance, Goyescas: When Art Becomes Music, or From Spain to Cuba and Back, the Boston Arts Consort offers programs that are thoughtfully designed and passionately executed.
