The BPL’s Hosting Free Concerts in the Courtyard—and They’ll Be Livestreamed
Can’t make it to Copley? Now you can watch live music from your desk at work.
The Boston Public Library announced today its 2017 Concerts in the Courtyard schedule. The program brings musical acts to the central library’s gorgeous courtyard, where twice a week—Wednesday evenings and Fridays around lunchtime—different performers will put on an hourlong show, gratis.
The performances are free and open to the public, ranging in genre from classical to jazz, world, etc. And this year there’s an added bonus: Now you can catch Concerts in the Courtyard without even going to the library. The BPL will livestream the Friday concerts on their Facebook page.
