Want to discover more local music?
Here are a few special resources for exploring the richness of our local music scene:
  • New England Early Music Calendar is a long-time local site where you can find local early music and list your own events.
  • Boston Musical Intelligencer's Concert and Event Calendar lists classical music of all kinds.
  • Groupmuse organizes what they describe as live classical music house party-concerts. "It's casual, friendly, and intimate." Discounts for concerts in more traditional settings sometimes available. 
Thinking about private lessons or coached ensemble classes? See our
Early Music teachers List.
