Explore historic Boston and perform to an array of music-loving audiences!

One of America's oldest cities (founded in 1630), Boston remains one of the country's most European in feel and played a key role in the American Revolution. The vibrant city centre is ideal for visiting ensembles; with venues such as Bolytson Plaza and Faneuil Hall Marketplace offering good instrumental options. Aside from these city centre concerts why not venture into 'Witch Country' and perform to the residents of Salem?
