The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular might be the star of the Hatch Shell come the Fourth of July, but it’s the Boston Landmarks Orchestra that performs free weekly shows all summer long.

“Universal access and summertime fun lie at the heart of all Boston Landmarks Orchestra programs,” says music director Christopher Wilkins in a press release. “Children, families, cultural organizations, and first-time concertgoers all have an important role to play. The 2016 season is also the most interactive in our history, as members of our community are active participants in almost every program.”

The shows will take place every Wednesday at 7 p.m. July 13 through August. Here’s your lineup:
