The courtyard of the Central Library in Copley Square is one of Boston's most beautiful havens from the hustle and bustle of the city. As is now tradition, the iconic space fills with music during Friday afternoons in the summertime.
Due COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 summer concerts will be livestreamed from the courtyard for virtual attendance only.
Every Friday at 12:30 p.m. (from July 10 through August 28), tune into the to the BPL’s YouTube channel to enjoy an hour of free music in styles ranging from jazz and singer-songwriter to experimental and contemporary classical to Latin and African American spirituals. You can find details about the artists at bit.ly/BPLSummerConcerts. To watch past concerts from this year, view our YouTube playlist.
We are grateful to the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, the presenting sponsor of Concerts in the Courtyard for the second year in a row. We deeply appreciate the Bank’s commitment to the arts and to these concerts, which are free and open to all.
