The Boston Arts Consort - music     culture      literature






Welcome to Events! 





Throughout 2016-17 the Consort had a wonderful  celebration of the art of Enric Granados, and though we'll never say goodbye to this great composer, we are now in preparation for our new season. On our agenda this spring is "Pasión Argentina! --Song, Poetry, and Tango Lessons".  In spring and summer  we'll present "A Night in Spain"--music, dance, poetry,  zarzuela and cuisine,  and  "Justice Poets of Spain"--paying homage to the poets of the Spanish Civil War, with  special emphasis on the poetry and music of Garcia Lorca, and, we'll also be part of a special program of French song and history to accompany an exhibition of original Parisian watercolors by Copley artist Gary Tucker.   

         See our event details below and join our email list for 
   personal updates. 
 We look forward to sharing with you!
