Concerts at the DCR's Hatch Shell

Organized by norm.g
People bring their blankets or chairs, food, wine, and friends to sit on the lawn on summer evenings to listen to classics and occasionally new works. The Landmarks Orchestra is generally good, occasionally excellent, and the venue is, well, FREE.

The season starts out with a program devoted to their annual "green" concert, celebrating our city, state, and national parks, and honoring the men and women who protect and preserve them. Come out and enjoy the music under the open sky!
