THE PARTY IS ON!

…as Camerata gears up for its 60th anniversary reason. Please have a look at our schedule.

We’ll be featuring (among other events) a reprise of “The Sacred Bridge” and its intercultural cast…..but the first item of business is going to be Anne’s brilliant new production of “The Play of Daniel.” Initial rehearsals for that event begin in just a few days.

You won’t want to miss ANY of these performances, so please do join us on the dance floor and sign up for a season subscription. There are still a few days left to get special, discounted prices! We look forward to seeing you!

The CyberCentaur checks this page frequently, and he notes that over the last few days, it soared past 750 “likes.” How lovely, he thinks, for The Boston Camerata to have so many friends and wellwishers in cyberspace. Well, we like you right back. Have a good week!

Frans Brueggen Remembered


Frans Brueggen directed The Boston Camerata in the late 1970′s, in one of his first ventures as conductor. He also collaborated as narrator during the first production of “A Renaissance Christmas.” We remember him as a superb musician, and a supremely intelligent and inquisitive human being.

The Music Director Emeritus is pleased…

…to see Camerata in the movies :-) And to have the film win one of the three major festival awards. We had a great time at our annual after party, where we announced the 2014 winners! Thanks to Tasty Burger Harvard Square for sponsoring the event.
