COPLEY STAGE                   FRI  |  SAT  |  SUN         See all free events


The final day of Summer Arts Weekend is dedicated to classical music performances, but takes some unorthodox turns. The piano duo Anderson & Roe will show that classical can be fresh, funky and fun while Igudesman and Joo will bring some theatrical flair to their performance. Alison Balsom and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra will round out the afternoon.

After the music ends on the Copley Stage, continue your night with a Copley Club performance. Learn more about these exclusive ticketed events and buy tickets here.
