about the festival

Music Celebrations International is pleased to produce the Boston Instrumental Festival taking place March 28, 2021 in the iconic Boston Symphony Hall. Few cities in the United States rival the historical and musical significance of Boston.

By American standards, Boston is old! You can walk cobbled streets lit by gas lamps and visit sites integral to the American Revolution. This is the city of Paul Revere, Sam Adams, John Hancock and Elizabeth “Mother” Goose. By day, see a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party or a game by the Red Sox, and at night attend a concert by the Boston Symphony or the Pops. Retrace Revere’s ride to Concord and Lexington, or go to Salem to visit the House of Seven Gables and the Witch Museum. Have a memorable seafood dinner in historic Gloucester or Rockport on Cape Ann.

From its celebrated symbols of patriotism to its undiscovered neighborhoods, the sights and sounds of the nation’s revolutionary birthplace inspire millions of visitors every year. Packed with famous sights, free attractions, and an endless calendar of special events, Boston offers year-round
inspiring experiences.

In addition to its historic significance, Boston was also home to the Second New England School, made up of six composers whose music embodies American Classical music.
