Concerts in the Courtyard

Winter Concert Series

The Winter Concert Series in the Johnson Building at the Central Library in Copley Square, one of Boston's most beautiful spaces, is filled with music during free, one-and-a half-hour Saturday afternoon concerts throughout the winter.

We are grateful to our 2020 Presenting Sponsor Bank of America Charitable Foundation for its generous support of this free music series. Concerts are also presented with the assistance of Berklee College of Music.
